dk. b., g., 16.3 hands, 9 years, German-bred Hanoverian (Ramires—Ramona, Roncalli xx), owned by the rider.
ANDREW HOY (AUS)
age 53, Swindon, Wittshire, England.
In 2011, this team placed fourth at the Wiesbaden CIC*** (Germany) and third at the Blair Castle International CCI*** (England). This year they placed second at the Montelibretti CCI*** (Italy).
Andrew is a former winner here and one of the best riders in the world. However, Rutherglen seems a bit inexperienced at this level. Although Andrew gives out free riding lessons every time you watch him go by, he will not be able to repeat his winning performance from 2006.
