CHI Geneva 2016

These two have really impressed in the 2016 Rolex Grand Slam-series: Scott Brash and Ursula XII were second in the Rolex Grand Prix of Aachen, won the CP International Grand Prix presented by Rolex at Spruce Meadows and finished third in the Rolex Grand Prix of Geneva.

Got to love this horse: The lovely H&M Legend of Love finished second with Olivier Philippaerts. “I added one more stride to the last vertical to be safe and that cost me the first place. I am still super happy with my horse and I think it is a very special horse for the future,” Olivier explained at the press conference.

It started well for Martin Fuchs and Clooney 51, who moved on to the jump-off after a first clear round...
