The winner was Princess Nathalie Sayn Wittgenstein Berleburg riding Digby, the horse that she had sadi last year she had retired but here he was, out showing that full time retirement is not for him as he put forward one of his best performances. When Princess Nathalie was asked about why she brought him to CHI AL SHAQAB 2014 she stated “I said I would retire him from the team but not entirely. I wanted to take some stress off him. I wanted him to have fun with no pressure and that’s why we are here.” She credits Digby with her success, “He is really fit and I keep him fit at home. I know him so well and he’s so smart. I think that’s one of his best performances.”
