Norway's Ole Kristoffer Meland has sold his best horse Buckle Up to Shane Sweetnam.

The 10-year-old gelding by Colandro x Caretino has been with Meland since he was six, and has been produced all the way up to five-star Grand Prix level. Last year, the two jumped World Cups in Budapest, Bratislava, Oslo and Madrid. In the spring of 2015, the pair won the CSIO3* Grand Prix in Odense. 

Sweetnam has also recently taken over the reins on Cobolt, that was previously seen under Sweden's Niklas Arvidsson. Now, the Irish rider strengthens his string of horses even further.
