Olympic gold medallist Scott Brash admitted he felt on top of the world, after snatching victory in the Turkish Airlines Grand Prix on the final night of the Olympia International Horse Show.
The 34-year-old – who was part of the jumping team that claimed top spot at London 2012 – had never won the event in the English capital, but dazzled the home crowd with a stunning run on board 10-year-old Hello Vincent.
Brash was the last to go in the seven-horse jump-off and went clear in a time of 34.23s to finish ahead of Australia’s Edwina Tops-Alexander, who had gone clear with Identity Vitseroel in 35.05s.
There was further cause for British celebration as Holly Smith – who also earned the show’s overall leading rider accolade – completed the podium with Hearts Destiny thanks to a clear round 0.44s further back.
