The last Irish-bred horse to win the German event was the traditionally-bred Irish Sport Horse Mr Cruise Control (Cruising x Broussard), ridden by New Zealand’s Andrew Nicholson. Zara Tindell (GBR) took the runner up spot that year riding another traditionally-bred Irish Sport Horse – High Kingdom (Master Imp x Chair Lift).
