Wednesday, 06 July 2022
CHIO Aachen 2022

With a lot at stake, and €1,500,000 in prize money, there were a lot of feelings in Sunday's Rolex Grand Prix of Aachen. We look back behind the scenes as the jump-off unfolded in the most prestigious Grand Prix in the world. 

Here Scott Brash's longtime groom David Honnet, who had good reason to smile after a triple clear round from Hello Jefferson.
