Suregrow sponsored riders Carl Hester and Richard Davison are on winning form after taking first and second place in the grand prix freestyle to music at the Equerry Bolesworth International Horse Show.
Carl Hester concluded a memorable dressage programme at the Equerry Bolesworth International Horse Show by being crowned grand prix freestyle to music champion.
Carl, winner of 10 major championship medals and a British dressage statesman during his illustrious career, thrilled a capacity crowd that basked in the Thursday afternoon sunshine with 10-year-old gelding Hawtins Delicato.
Their performance in the Equitop Myoplast-sponsored class showcased the rich potential of Carl’s exciting ride, offering further evidence why they are likely to be Great Britain team members at the World Equestrian Games in America later this year.
A score of 76.225 per cent proved enough to edge out Richard Davison and Bubblingh – they recorded an impressive 75.875 per cent.
“He gave me a great feeling,” Carl said. “I am beginning to understand him, and it is great getting to know him.
“The feeling on him is incredible. He has come here and gone up a level again.
“I did the best extended trots I’ve done with him today, and it is such a luxury having a horse that looks like him. He is so comfortable and nice in the hand.
“I am very happy with how it is all going. He just needs to tick along.”
