Other information RIO DISAPPOINTMENT
In July 2016 he decided his horse Carom was not fit enough to compete at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro and withdrew from the Dutch squad. "Horses cannot talk, but I know Carom very well and he does not deserve to be taking part in a match half-fit. He has had an incredibly good season but it is unbelievable that you are so close and this can happen. It is very unfortunate." (rtvoost.nl, 16 Jul 2016)

He owns Willem Greve Sportpaarden in Markelo, Netherlands. (eqnewsandsportsmedia.com, 15 Sep 2016; scgvisual.com, 15 Jan 2016)
