Flashback to the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles, California, with a nail-biter jump-off showdown between Conrad Homfeld on Abdullah and Joe Fargis aboard Touch of Class!
Let’s set the scene: it’s the 1984 Olympic Summer Games. Teammates and partners Conrad Homfeld and Joe Fargis enter the jump-off tiebreaker round to settle show jumping individual gold, having already won team gold. Each is riding a legend: Homfeld aboard the stallion Abdullah, Fargis with the fan favorite Thoroughbred, the mare Touch of Class.
What happens next is one of the great moments in equestrian history, a jump-off that lights up the stadium, bringing the crowd to its feet with the kind of excitement that electrifies the sport.
Joe Fargis and Touch of Class’s “perfect Games” meant that they had jumped a total of five rounds clear, a truly impressive feat of athleticism. They went home from the 1984 Olympics as double gold medalists, having earned a place in show jumping history with an incredible performance.
