Steeplechase Geldings

Steeplechase and the Tapper family have dedicated this special page to our very first beloved TB gelding of 15 very memorable years. On January 9th, 2005 Bugger left this world of racing, 2 day event circuit and dressage onto a special heaven for all horses. After a bout with colic due to a lypoma tumor, Bugger had to leave us. He will be deeply missed, however we have all those special memories and many photo's to keep his memory alive.

Bugger, Our beloved champion Bugger, Our beloved champion
