Curtains close for Carambole at Jumping Amsterdam 2023

Sunday, 29 January 2023
CSI5*-W Jumping Amsterdam 2023

On Saturday night, Willem Greve’s long-time partner Carambole (San Patrignano Cassini x Concerto II) was thanked off from the sport with a retirement ceremony at Jumping Amsterdam 2023. 

The pair – that has been together since the stallion was four – was part of the Dutch team that won the Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup Final in Barcelona in 2021, and also helped their country to victories in the Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cups in La Baule and Rotterdam in 2016. Carambole and Greve have numerous other big wins on their record too, such as in the CSI4* Grand Prix in Amsterdam in 2015, the CSI3* Grand Prix in Drachten in 2015, the CSI3* Grand Prix in Hardelot in 2015 and the CSI3* Grand Prix in Knokke in 2017. The two also represented the Netherlands at the European Championships in Herning in 2013. 

“He has given me so much, and he owes me nothing," Greve told WoSJ in a previous interview announcing the retirement. "You don’t get so many opportunities to give a horse a podium like Barcelona and let him finish his career with a result like that."
