Raining Gold in Tryon
Four years have flown by; another World Equestrian Games complete despite the chaos caused by hurricane Florence!
Once again we have to take our hat off to the master; Boyd Exell took his third consecutive individual Gold Medal for Four-in-Hand Driving.
And it was great to see Piggy French on flying form, helping to secure the Eventing Team Gold with Quarrycrest Echo.
Closer to home
Our Eventing Nations Cup team also took home a Gold Medal in Waregem, Belgium. Mille Dumas put in a fantastic clear cross country with Artistiek, despite the terrible weather making for treacherous going.
And in dressage, Sara Gallop secured her first International win with Summerhouse Brandreo at the Saumur CDI2* in France. The British National Championships followed two weeks later, Sara completing her season on a high with a Reserve in the Young Horse Championship with the stunning little 6yr old, BKS Fantasia.
