When Daniel Deusser was about to go in the ring at the Longines Masters of Los Angeles for his first class on Equita van’t Zorgvliet he had a sudden realization: he’d never shown the horse indoors before.

But when crunch time came, that didn’t matter, and “Equita” put all the pieces together to win the  $377,500 Longines Grand Prix of Los Angeles.

“The adjustment was quite quick with her,” said Deusser, who represents Germany but is based in Belgium.

Daniel Deusser wasn't sure how the jump-off of the $130,000 American Invitational was going to work out for him. “It was a big jump-off. I actually didn’t have the fastest horse, so I was a little bit nervous going in,” Deusser said.

Out of a starting field of 49, there were 14 horses qualified for the jump-off. “I thought I had to do something special to win. At the end, I was also a little bit lucky. A few were faster and had one down, and I won, so I’m really happy about that," Deusser said.
