A CONVERSATION WITH...SCOTT BRASH MBE
Scott Brash has risen to the highest level of show jumping sport by way of his humble beginnings in Peebles, Scotland. Having had a number of prolific horses along the way, it was his partnership with Hello Sanctos which began in a yard in Germany in 2010 that has become firmly etched in history. On Sunday, September 11th 2016, Scott Brash and Ursula XII claimed the second Major of the year, the $3,000,000 CP ‘International’ Grand Prix presented by Rolex at the Spruce Meadows ‘Masters’ Tournament. On the win, he said:
“I’m actually so happy for my horse, Ursula,” said Brash of the 15-year old Warmblood mare (Ahorn x Papageno). “It’s been a long road with her. She’s always been an unbelievable horse but probably never had the recognition she deserves. She’s been second so many times in so many big grand prixs but never actually won one. To go through two years of injury now to finally have her back at the top end of this sport and to win the biggest grand prix in the world. I’m absolutely over the moon for the horse.”
