Equestrian Legends – Franke Sloothaak and Walzerkoenig – Seoul Olympics 1988

Franke Sloothaak: a showjumping legend

With his smooth accurate riding and scopey jumping horses, Franke Sloothaak is certainly a showjumping legend around the world, as this video of Franke Sloothaak and the famous Walzerkoenig jumping a superb clear round at the 1988 Seoul Olympics clearly demonstrates.

That year I was laid up with my leg in plaster having had surgery to for a ligament transplant on my ankle, following injury where I broke my back and severed the ligament in my ankle, so I had plenty of time to watch the experts at work at the Olympics!
