SCOTT BRASH MAKES HISTORY AT SPRUCE MEADOWS!
Every year thousands of equestrians travel to Spruce Meadows or tune in online or on TV to watch one of our favorite events of the year – The Masters. The best equestrian athletes in the world, a breathtaking and historic venue, and a track that will keep everyone on the edge of their seats.
For Scott Brash, the masters held an even higher stake then it did to the other riders. He had the opportunity to win the Rolex Grand Slam after winning in Geneva and Aachen – it was basically the triple crown of show jumping and the chance to make history.
Despite the rain, and some impressive rides by Brazil and Belgium in the jump off of eleven riders, Scott took to the ring with his eyes on the prize. Despite a very lucky rub he managed to pull off an incredible trip and left the entire arena of 85,000 people on their feet cheering. With a 1.6 million dollar pay day, Scott is also the first rider to ever win all three show jumping majors consecutively.
At only 29 years old Scott is one of the most talented riders of our generation adding this title to his already impressive resume that includes Olympic team gold, European team gold and individual bronze and two Global Champions Tour Series titles.
