It's been a long time (since winning). We took ten riders on the short list, and every Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup we had a different team. We only have one rider from last weekend here, that's Beezie and all four horses are new. We have been shuffling the deck, and have been getting incredible experience over here. We are very fortunate at the moment with the depth that we have and the future that we have. It was a great day for us."
