Chris Chugg on horse selection and Tokyo 2020
Chris Chugg is one of Australia’s most experienced riders who has competed with great success at home as well as internationally. Not only is he one of our top competitors, but his ability to raise and train top jumpers is legendary.
Last weekend at the Pryde’s EasiFeed World Cup Show at Gatton, Chugg gained the first half of his Minimum Eligibility Requirement (MER) for Tokyo 2020 on his fantastic mount PSS Levilensky. A feat made all the more notable by virtue of the fact that he rode in the Magic Millions World Cup Qualifier Class with 6 broken ribs, courtesy of a fall in a class the previous day.
We caught up with him a few weeks ago to talk about PSS Levilensky, what he looks for in a horse and his views on Olympic selection. We hope you enjoy hearing his thoughts on these subjects as much as we did.
