Supreme Rock is a 1988 Irish Sport Horse, ridden by Pippa Funnell in 4* Event competitions for Great Britain. He is a bay, 16.3 hand high gelding. He was retired in 2005 at the Badminton Horse Trials. He is remembered primarily for his role in Funnell's completion of the Grand Slam of Eventing, winning the Badminton Horse Trials, the Rolex Kentucky Three Day and The Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials. He is also the only horse ever to have won two European Championship titles back-to-back - Luhmühlen (Germany) in 1999, and Pau (France) in 2001 - as well as being one of a select group of horses to have won Badminton Horse Trials twice in 2002 and 2003. The high point of his career with Funnell was winning team Silver at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney.[1]
