Scott Brash‘s Rolex Grand Slam-winning ride Hello Sanctos topped the charts when we asked you to vote for your horse of the year — beating dressage sensation Valegro and Badminton winner Chilli Morning to the top spot.
The 13-year-old gelding, owned by Lady Harris and Lady Kirkham, produced the solo clear round under Scott in the grand slam’s third leg at Spruce Meadows in September, having triumphed in the first two legs at Aachen and Geneva — clinching a €1million prize-fund.
