She went on saying, “I brought her up since she was five and we went through tough times. And at one point I thought there was no chance I’d be able to ride her.” She also said, “So, to actually come and win a Grand Prix here, it’s just super. And in Dubai, at home. I’m really happy. She’s a super horse, a fantastic horse and when I just ride her well she’ll just do everything for me.”Filed under United Arab Emirates
