Cheered on by one of the most enthusiastic audiences ever to attend Horse of the Year Show, Dutchman Albert Zoer and Sam were the last 2012 combination to compete in the Andrews Bowen International Arena. The crowd held their breath, watching in anticipation to see whether or not he’d be able to catch British Team Gold Medallist Scott Brash’s leader with Mon Ami. The gasps of the crowd as he landed over the last fence turned in to a deafening eruption of adulation as he claimed his first victory on his debut visit to “The World’s Most Famous Horse Show”.
“Tonight was absolutely perfect,” said Albert. “To win in front of that crowd was quite special and the show has been great. I really hope to come back here again.”
Popular Egyptian rider Abdel Said hadn’t had the best of weeks until today when he took a decisive win in the Vinopolis Speed Horse of the Year with Skara Glen’s Naiky d’Elca. Fond of British shows, Abdel, who is based in Belgium was thrilled to be back at the Birmingham NEC.
“I am glad I was able to get a good result in the end I just love coming to this show,” said Abdel. “The atmosphere is amazing and the crowd are so supportive and cheer everybody on. I’d love to come back again.”
