‘A Portrait of the CSIO Spruce Meadows Masters’ by Eric Lamaze
World class show jumper Eric Lamaze describes Spruce Meadows, in Canada, as magical – one of those venues that brings horses and riders to life. It is well known as a place of show jumping excellence and intense competition where the best horse and rider pairs showcase equestrian mastery. For Lamaze, who won the CSIO Spruce Meadows ‘Masters’ twice astride his greatest partner Hickstead, the venue is full of momentous achievements and incredible memories. To date, it is the only competition with the honour of witnessing the Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping go from dream to reality when Scott Brash became the first – and so far the only – rider to complete the quest on Spruce Meadows’ historic grounds.
