Robinson (horse)

Robinson is a horse ridden by the American show jumper Richard Spooner.

  • Color: Fleabitten Gray
  • Born: 1988 in Germany
  • Breed: Hanoverian
  • Breeding: by Raphael, out of Garina
  • Owner: HMB Enterprises

Robinson was bought as an 8-year-old from Ludger and Marcus Beerbaum in 1996. Since then, he has won over $1 million in prize money and over 30 Grand Prixs, including the Queens Cup, the Crysler Derby, and the Las Vegas Grand Prix at the 2003 World Cup Finals.

In addition, Robinson has been made PCHA horse of the year three times, United States Grand Prix League horse of the year, and earned a fourth place finish in the strenuous Riders Tour in Europe.

Robinson is famous for hanging his tongue out of his mouth during competition, usually to the right, a quirk which many find endearing.
