During Gothenburg International Horse Show, Rolf got elected to the show’s new Hall of Fame. Rolf got company from no other than living legend John Whitaker and his former super star Milton, Louise Nathhorst and Walk on Top as well as Liz and (posthumously) Lars Parmler – founders of the show.
The 2019 Hall of Fame inductees were honoured in a ceremony Saturday evening April 6th.
The Hall of Fame jury wrote the following about Rolf: “In 1996 riding Paradiso he was the first Swedish rider in then 20 editions of the show to win the Gothenburg Trophy. He won the same class again in 2005 with Grandina. He has since then become a double Olympic silver medallist, and in 2011 Rolf -Göran was the first Swedish rider to become an individual European Champion. He is also so far the only Swede to be ranked World Number One and has more FEI World Cup™ qualifier wins than any other Swede (8).”
