Bloody Horse Disqualifies Olympia Grand Prix Winner

Jumping Horse

The winner of the 2015 Olympia Grand Prix made an almost perfect final run on Quainton Stud’s Quiet Easy with a time of only 30.45 seconds, almost 2 seconds faster than the nearest rival.  His amazing run was not without problems, as blood was flowing from a cut on the horses offside caused by his spur.

Upon discovery of the injury caused by his spur, he was eliminated from the competition.  “I’m utterly devastated, just speechless.  I have a fantastic relationship with all of my horses and their welfare is paramount. My foot must have slipped against Quiet Easy’s side as I was riding against the clock. He’s a sensitive horse and it was just a tiny nick,” he said.
