Olympic medal record

Silver 1996 Atlanta Team eventing

Heyday was a horse that competed in the sport of eventing, ridden by American Bruce Davidson. He was one of the Top Ten All American High Point Horses of the Century in eventing.

  • Born: 1987
  • Markings: Star, off fore sock
  • Height: 16.0 hh (163 cm)
  • Breeding: by Babamist, out of More Mischief
  • Owner: Dr. Elinor Jenny

Heyday was very successful at a young age, competing at the advanced level at the age 6. He went on to represent the United States at the Atlanta Olympics in 1996, earning the team silver medal, won the 1995 Pan American Games, came second at the Blenheim Horse Trials in 1997, and won team bronze at the World Championships in Rome. However, Heyday was notorious for his inconsistent show jumping rounds.

Heyday was then ridden by Maisy Grassie, who had great success in the Young Riders with him, taking him to her first Advanced Horse Trials.
