Quotes from Valkenswaard......
Kevin Staut- “Do I wake up and wonder how this all happened (European Champion and currently ranked 1 in the world)? No, I get up to ride far to early for that!”
Jessica Kurten- “I made a deal with Myrtille (Castle Forbes Mrytille Paulois). Jump one clear round in the Grand Prix and you get a month in the field! She must have listened because she nearly jumped two so she is off for a holiday now.”
Martina Hingis (Former Number One tennis player) “The discipline from playing tennis does help my riding but in tennis you have several sets to fix things if you begin playing badly. With show jumping you only get a couple of minutes!”
Jerome Lambert, CEO Jaeger-LeCoultre,-”It is the same sense of elegance that our company enjoys with show jumping. And it takes many hours of team work for us to make one of our watches, that is also the same, it takes the same commitment to make a top horse and rider combination. We like to think our watches are dream machines and the horses, they are dream machines of the horse world.”
Jan Tops- “ The VDL Groep are more than just partners, they are our friends.”
Laura Kraut- “Well I would have loved to be top of the GCT rankings as well, but I suppose you cant have everything!” (After winning her second GCT Grand Prix and being selected for WEG in the same week!)
