The iconic show jumping stallion Don VHP Z retired at GC Valkenswaard in an emotional ceremony, as the world's top riders lined the arena to celebrate this incredible horse as he took a final lap of honour around the spectacular arena. 

 

Speaking about this 'one of a kind' horse, known as one of the most consistent Grand Prix horses in the world, his rider Harrie Smolders said “He jumped over and over clear and clear at 1.60m level, he is one of a kind, I don’t think many horses will ever match that. He brought me to number 1 in the world, he brought me the Longines Global Champions Tour title, always under pressure he was unbelievable.”
