Huge Congratulations to Oliver Townend who is in 3rd place at this point after the dressage with a great dressage score of 73.61% (39.6) only 1.8 penalties off the leader Andrew Nicholson.
Former Badminton and Burghley winner Oliver Townend is last year’s BE number one rider and currently number 4 in the World rankings. He partnered Armada to second place at Badminton last year, and things are definitely looking positive for this years competition.
One of Horse Scouts busiest listed professional riders his Badminton Horse Trials write up for 2015 says he gained three first and second placings at a recent outing with some 14 rides over three days to bring home nine top four placings. This man is everything that says impressive.
