After lacking competition for quite a while, Brutsaert made a fantastic comeback. Bo: “My goal was to advance to the finals. In the preliminaries I had to get used to showing again so I got off on the wrong foot, but after concluding the consolation round I was confident again. The mare did really well. I have to credit Kim Obenhaus for the perfect job she did on her. Kim has trained the mare and has ridden her until the day I left for Cremona.”
