King Edward is the most valuable show jumper in the world

Henrik von Eckermann rode King Edward to Olympic and World Champion titles. The Swede took over the miracle gelding from Janika Sprunger, his Swiss wife. He is currently riding him in Basel.

Jumping horse names can be odd (Killer Queen) or complicated (Gamin van’t Naastveldhof). However, there is one that fits perfectly: King Edward. The chestnut gelding is currently the king among show jumpers. In his saddle, Henrik von Eckermann won Olympic gold in Tokyo (2021) with Sweden’s team – and consider double gold in singles and with the team at the 2022 World Championships in Herning (Dä).

The top horse of the world number 1 is currently traded as the most valuable show jumper in the world. Its market value is estimated to be in the mid double-digit million range. Reason enough for some facts about 13-year-old King Edward, who can currently be admired at the CSI Basel.
