Photos by Jenny Abrahamsson."I never expected to be in the top four final, let alone become World Champion," Jeroen Dubbeldam says to World of Showjumping four days after returning home from the World Equestrian Games in Normandy. "I knew we had a good chance with the team. We had three experienced combinations, that all were on the silver medal team in London. Then it was me and Zenith SFN. He is an inexperienced horse compared to the rest on the team, but I knew he was in good form. When we won the team gold, I considered that my job was more or less done – what happened after Thursday was a total surprise," Dubbeldam continues.

Team spirit trumps the snow at Spruce Meadows

E-mail Print PDF

_K7X2981It has been a historic day at Spruce Meadows. Over 25 cm of snow has fallen on the grounds, and a resulting 8 hour power outage, combined with the devastating impact of the snow on the Spruce Meadows trees and grounds has made for a tremendously difficult day.


The snow forced all competitions originally scheduled for Wednesday, September 10 to be postponed as well as the closure of the Exhibit space and Plaza. The decision to reschedule Wednesday's events was driven primarily by lack of available essential services including power, water (reverting to the standby water source for the horses), telephone service and other essentials. This lead to the Spruce Meadows Organizing Committee decision, and its genuine concern for the overall safety of the public and all involved with the operations and participation at the 'Masters'.
