Hartpury Festival of Dressage
Horse Scout was among the high profile sponsors at Hartpury’s Festival of Dressage
Last week, where around 1,000 spectators gathered to watch the country’s best dressage riders including Charlotte Dujardin who stole the show scoring 90.625% when she premiered her new Olympic Grand Prix Freestyle on Valegro.
The Olympic duo also won the CDI Grand Prix class sponsored by Horse Scout scoring 82.28% — 5% ahead of Carl Hester
who came second on Nip Tuck. Third and fourth place was taken by fellow Olympic dressage team members Spencer Wilton on Super Nova II (77.50%) and Fiona Bigwood on Atterupgaards Orthilia (75.14%).
Charlotte’s performance was such that by Monday, 6,000 people had already tuned in to see the video of her winning the Horse Scout-sponsored class on Hartpury’s website.
Other notable victories at Hartpury Festival of Dressage included Carl Hester and Nip Tuck who beat fellow competitors by an impressive 10% margin in Sunday’s Grand Prix Special class, sponsored by Baileys. Michael Eilberg was another highlight scoring 76.632% to win the Shadow Horse FEI CDI Inter I on Woodlander
More than 300 riders from around 19 nations competed at the event which gave spectators the opportunity to see a host of Olympic riders perform for the last time before they head to Rio.
