Images | The Rolex Grand Prix of Geneva 2018

Thursday, 13 December 2018
CHI Geneva 2018

As always, the Rolex Grand Prix of Geneva was one of the highlights of the year. Home hero Steve Guerdat gave his everything with Bianca, and was just fractions away from the win that went to Marcus Ehning. We look back at Sunday's competition. All photos (c) Jenny Abrahamsson.

Photo (c) Jenny Abrahamsson. Oh, that is the right spot! H&M Chilli Willi didn't mind waiting for the prize giving.

Photo (c) Jenny Abrahamsson. Darragh Kenny and Balou du Reventon gave their all and it was good enough for a third place.

Photo (c) Jenny Abrahamsson. The winner from Spruce Meadows - Sameh El Dahan - was the Rolex Grand Slam Live Contender but it was not to be. First, Sameh wasn't qualified for the Grand Prix, but got in at the last minute when Billy Twomey decided not to jump. Then, a few poles fell and Sameh opted to retire.

Photo (c) Jenny Abrahamsson. We will miss you Ursula XII! Enjoy your retirement.
