Brego

Brego The horse belonged to Éowyn's cousin, King Théoden's son, Théodred, who had just been killed in a battle with Orcs. Aragorn speaks to Brego in elvish and quiets him. Aragorn says to Éowyn, "Turn this fellow free. He has seen enough of war." This first scene between Aragorn and Brego appears only in the extended version of The Two Towers.

Later, on the Mar. to Helm's Deep, Aragorn is injured fighting Orcs on Wargs, falls off a cliff into a river, and is carried downstream. Brego then comes to the wounded Aragorn and lies down on the beach next to him so Aragorn can climb onto its back. He carries him the rest of the way to Helm's Deep. This side story does not exist in the book. Aragorn rides Brego in the charge out of Helm's Deep and to the Rohirrim camp at Dunharrow, but Brego runs away as he refused to enter the Paths of the Dead. It is unclear if the horse Aragorn rides to the Black Gate is Brego, though it has similar colouration.

Brego is played by a bay warmblood stallion named Uraeus. Before his movie career, Uraeus had been an FEI dressage star. Ridden by his then owner, the late Lockie Richards, he won New Zealand National Dressage titles. Like Viggo Mortensen, who plays Aragorn, who was brought on board to replace a previously cast actor after the filming had already began, Uraeus was brought out of semi-retirement to replace the horse previously cast as Brego which turned out not to be adequate. At the end of the trilogy's filming, Viggo Mortensen had created such a strong bond with Uraeus that Lockie agreed to sell the horse to him. Uraeus remains in New Zealand, looked after by Jane Abbott, one of the riding doubles who works on Peter Jackson’s films.

Uraeus had also a movie double, a horse named Brownie who was trained for the scene where Brego finds Aragorn injured on a river bank, rolls him over and lies down so Aragorn can scramble on him.
