David Broome on Milton


“I FIRST saw Milton at Newark Show. Caroline was riding him in the grade B&C class, and I asked how much she wanted for him.

“‘He’s not for sale,’ she replied. I said, ‘Never mind he’s not for sale, how much do you want for him?’

“She said no, she was keeping him, but eventually she promised

that if she ever did sell him I’d have first chance, but then the poor girl died.

“Milton was very lucky to finish up with John because he brought out the best in him. I competed against Milton most of his life, but it was always nice to have him on our Nations Cups teams as last to go. Everyone who ever saw Milton jump was very privileged.”
