The 29-year old former Swedish team horse Briar was the guest of honour at the 2020 Gothenburg Horse Show, where the horse was inducted into their Hall of Fame.

The liver chestnut licensed stallion looked in excellent condition for his age as he was presented in hand by his owner Hans Yngve Goransson.

Under Jan Brink, Briar was Sweden's leading dressage horse in the early 2000s. He competed in no less than 9 World Cup Finals between 2001 and 2009.

Briar was retired from sport at age 18 at the 2009 CDI-W Gothenburg.
