Thank you Cristallo!

Thank you

Last month, Richard Spooner announced the retirement of his long-time partner Cristallo (Caretino x Cicero). 

The now 20-year-old Holsteiner gelding was with Spooner since he was 6-years-old, and was for years one of the most successful horses on the international circuit. With Spooner in the saddle, Cristallo competed at several World Cup Finals and won the five-star Grand Prix of Monte Carlo in 2013 and in 2009, the three-star Grand Prix in Wellington in 2012, the World Cup in Lexington as well as the World Cup at Langley in 2011 in addition to recording numerous wins in major five-star classes at locations around the world such as Spruce Meadows, Geneva, La Coruna and Rome.

Here are some of our favourite photos of this fabulous combination, as we say thank you Cristallo!
