Jos Lansink has a busy day when we arrive at his yard in Meeuwen, Belgium a Thursday afternoon. Still in his riding gear after numerous sessions on the horse back, he is now fully occupied with saying good bye to and welcoming clients, trying out possible new horses to add to his stables, helping out his riders as well as building jumps. Lansink – former World Champion, Olympic and European team gold medallist, as well as World Cup Champion – runs a big dealing yard and sports stable. There are over fifty horses in his barn, and three additional international riders next to Jos – nevertheless you cannot detect any stress in the stables. Perhaps it is due to the fact that most of the horses are turned out in the surrounding paddocks and fields unless they are busy being hacked out or flatted. Because as we are soon to discover as we sit talking on a cavaletti in the middle of Lansink's beautiful outdoor ring, Jos is all about the happiness of the horses.

WoSJ Exclusive; Spruce Meadows - collectors of championship fences

E-mail Print PDF

_K7X4949Jon Garner - Competition Manager at Spruce Meadows. All photos by Jenny Abrahamsson.Spruce Meadows has a big collection of fences from different championships and Olympic Games - all the way back to the Olympic Games in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Jon Garner is Competitions Manager at Spruce Meadows and thus responsible for all the fences.


"We decide during the championships which fences we would like. Sometimes the designer and the organizers donate the fences - which is really nice! Now a lot of the designers and organizers know we have a collection. They like the idea of something they designed to stay here and going to keep getting used. Sometimes we can chose what fences we like and sometimes the organizer wants to keep some fences. For example in London we asked about the double decker bus but they really wanted to keep it. We are really thrilled with the ones we got though, they are iconic of London. And we want the fences to be obvious from where it came from."
