THE German crowd at the FEI Jumping European Championships in Riesenbeck last Saturday got the opportunity to see Marcus Ehning ride his longtime partner Comme Il Faut 5 for one last time in the arena before he was retired from the sport.

The 16-year-old Cornet Obolensky stallion jumped in the three-star Grand Prix and afterwards a farewell ceremony was held for the great horse who has been a wonderful servant to the German team.
