The Swiss show-jumper Steve Guerdat and his German colleague Christian Ahlmann are the focus of attention at the Spruce Meadows `Masters´. Because at the Major Show at the foot of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, the two riders have the chance to win a bonus in the "Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping". This initiative comprising of the three Major Shows - the CHI Geneva, CHIO Aachen and the Spruce Meadows `Masters´ - is the ultimate challenge in the field of equestrian sport.
Guerdat, who rode to victory in Geneva and Ahlmann, who was able to win the Rolex Grand Prix at the CHIO Aachen 2014, kicked off the show with good results in Canada. Guerdat and Ahlmann didn't actually reach the jump-off on Friday in the "Tourmaline Oil Cup" - Guerdat collected five faults in the first round with "Nasa" and Ahlmann picked up one penalty point "Cornado II" for exceeding the allowed time, however both riders presented themselves in top form for Sunday. When they will both endeavour to win the "CP International presented by Rolex" and go down in history as the first rider to claim a bonus in the Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping.
