Scott Brash is a British rider, and a Team Olympic Champion in London, in 2012. He started riding in Peebles, Scotland. He took part in his first championship competition in 2010 at the World Championships with Intertoy Z, a horse entrusted to him by Lord Harris.
In 2011, the young Scot met the horse that would go on to change his life. Lady Harris and Lady Kirkham entrusted Hello Sanctos, the horse with whom he wrote equestrian sporting history, to him. In addition to winning an Olympic medal in 2012, Hello Sanctos allowed Scott Brash to win the Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping, winning all three major events in the same cycle, namely the CHI Grand Prix of Geneva, the Aachen Grand Prix and the Spruce Meadows Grand Prix between 2014 and 2015. In 2014, in Geneva, Brash and Hello Sanctos even scored a double victory, winning the Grand Prix and the IJRC Top 10 Final.
In 2013, Brash became the World No. 1. He won two European medals: team gold in 2013 and team bronze in 2019. He also reached the 3rd step of the podium at the World Cup Final in Lyon in 2014 with Ursula.
For practical reasons, Scott Brash left his modest Scottish stables to move closer to London so that he would be close to competitions. After retiring his two star mounts, Hello Sanctos and Ursula, the British rider can still count on Harris and Kirkham’s support and has a good string of horses.
