Soaring over fences across the world, Clooney 51 and rider Martin Fuchs took the show jumping circuit by storm. In the hands of Fuchs, the grey 2006 Westphalian gelding became an international superstar for Switzerland and the most successful horse in Swiss show jumping history, winning multiple Grand Prix titles and over $3 million in prize money.
The pair were selected to be part of the Swiss Olympic team for Rio 2016, where they finished 9th in individual show jumping. They then returned for Tokyo 2021, where they finished 16th individually and 5th with the Swiss team. Other notable achievements included individual silver at the 2018 World Equestrian Games and individual gold at the 2019 FEI European Championships. Clooney 51 was retired in 2022.
