Video: the sublime clear round by just-retired Emerald in 2015

Earlier this week, the surprise retirement from competition of Olympic veteran Emerald van't Ruytershof – a star partner of World No.3 show jumper Harrie Smolders – was announced by his owner Axel Verlooy. Now 15, the stellar son of Diamant de Semilly will now be dedicated to breeding. In 2015, Emerald was rapidly ascending to the highest level in the sport with Dutchman Smolders. And that year, the bay pulled off a sublime clear round in the second round of the CSIO5* Nations Cup in La Baule, France. In the video below, a look back at that moment with GRANDPRIX TV.
