Sean Vard, groom of Clooney: "Clooney needs his freedom..."

Martin Fuchs already told us, the European Title is a team effort. That is why Sean Vard, the groom of Clooney 51 was a key figure in claiming the gold medal.

how did you experience the championships?

Rotterdam is always a beautiful show to attend,but during the championship it was very special ! Everything from the footing in longing circles to the excellent food for grooms and workers . The shopping boulevard was fantastic and the live music during the evenings was super !

How was Clooney in Rotterdam (apart from being amazing ;-))

Clooney was living the dream in Rotterdam๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€we (the Swiss jumpers ) had a great stable spot right beside the longing circle , so basically anytime the circle was not being used we could use it as a turnout paddock and the horses could have a nice roll ,enjoy the sun and fresh air.

Does Clooney have any particular needs?

Clooney needs freedom to be a horse and enjoy life. Also a lot of attention when he is in his box . Sugar helps !๐Ÿ˜‰

Does Martin have a ritual?

Martin likes always the horses are walking good before he sits on so the muscles are warm and ready to work . The same goes for after jumping , Martin will always trot and walk off the horses properly making my life that little big easier Otherwise heโ€™s quite relaxed and easy.

What was your nicest moment Of Rotterdam?

Walking back to the stables after the prize giving when my heartbeat had finally come back to a safe level . It was a nice walk back chatting with the new European champion (Clooney)๐Ÿ˜‰
