Images | Wrapping it up from the Spruce Meadows 'Masters' 2019

Thursday, 12 September 2019
CSIO5* Spruce Meadows 'Masters' 2019

It's a wrap to this year's edition of the Spruce Meadows 'Masters'! As always Spruce Meadows delivered an incredible event. A weekend at Spruce Meadows is like a roller-coaster of emotions – not just for the competitors and grooms, but also for the audience that is very engaged in every horse-and-rider combination. We look back at another magic week at one of our favourite venues.

It was impossible to stop laughing when Willem Greve thanked one of these horses for the outstanding performance actually delivered by his own horse Zypria. Thanks for the laugh Willem!

Then his friend Vladimir Tuganov stepped in and borrowed Wulschner Cosun to compete. The first class for Wulschner and Consun together was a 1.60m class at Spruce Meadows.

First they won the Nations Cup and then they had two riders qualified for the second round in the Grand Prix. Here Yves Vanderhasselt with the wonderful Jeunesse that ended 10th, while Francois Mathy Jr. with Uno de la Roque ended 4th.

As the Live Contender in the Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping he had to watch the second round from the sideline after having one rail down in the first round. Luckily, there are new chances in Geneva and Den Bosch.
