Scott Brash has announced the retirement of the incredible Hello Sanctos (Quasimodo van de Molendreef x Nabab de Reve). The now 17-year-old gelding has recorded Grand Prix victories all over the world, and is the only horse ever to win the Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping after topping the Rolex Grand Prix of Geneva in 2014 then following up with victories in the Rolex Grand Prix of Aachen as well as at Spruce Meadows in 2015. 

Brash and Hello Sanctos were also part of the British team that won the gold at the Olympic Games in London in 2012 as well as gold at the European Championships in Herning in 2013. In Herning, Brash and Hello Sanctos also won the individual bronze medal. 

On his official instagram account Brash writes: “After an incredible journey together, my owners and I have decided it’s time to retire the legendary Hello Sanctos. This short film highlights just what an amazing horse he is and we can’t thank him enough for changing our lives. We will have a special retirement service for him @chigeneve on Saturday 14 December, a show that means a lot to us as it is where his @rolex_grand_slam journey started.”

At World of Showjumping, we wish Hello Sanctos a very happy retirement!
