Its a Team Silver Following the Dressage Phase of Eventing for Team GB

Team GB has completed the two-day dressage stage of the Eventing phase at the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games, sitting in silver medal position with Rosalind Canter, holding individual bronze.

Lincolnshire based Rosalind Canter and the 13-year-old gelding Allstar B, finished on an almighty score of 24.6 (penalties) helping team GB up into the medal category.

Ros said;

I’m absolutely over the moon with Allstar B. He’s been such a trooper and he’s so consistent in the dressage. I gave him a day off yesterday because he worked so well the day before. Everytime he comes out he just gives me everything – I’m delighted.”

Teammate Piggy French, and the stunning 11-year-old gelding Quarrycrest Echo, produced some very impressive work once settled, finishing on a score of 27.8, holding individual 15th place.


Said French

I am really pleased, he felt fantastic. He had one mistake at the beginning as we cantered out of the first halt and it took a while to warm-up but on the whole I am delighted; he really gave his all,” Piggy said.

Tom McEwen and 11 year old gelding Toledo de Kerser, produced a ‘fluent, forward and expressive’ test to leave the arena only just behind French on 28.4.

I was delighted with him, it was a great positive test. It could have been more, I just had a mess with a change at the end but he was fantastic. There was a decent atmosphere this morning and he’s given us a strong team score.”

Said Tom.
