Showjumper Scott Brash paid tribute to his ‘once in a lifetime’ horse after he claimed the Global Champions Tour series title for the second consecutive year.
Brash, who won team jumping gold at London 2012, rode Hello Sanctos at the final event in Doha.
And, despite finishing on the same points total as Sweden’s Rolf-Goran Bengtsson, the Scot won the title by having more wins over the course of the season.
The world number one started the final in third place and clinched fourth at the final event to seal the win.
“He is a once in a lifetime horse and he really deserves to be the world No. 1 horse,” he said. “It’s a great feeling.”
“My owners are here and they will excited with his win. He has been fantastic. I took him too slow in the first round, but he jumped brilliantly in both. It’s a great feeling.”
