Piggy French Tops the dressage finishing on 34.70

Piggy French and DHI Topper W ride into the lead after dressage at the CIC2* invitational, producing a super clean test peppered with 9's - and including a 10 for their final halt - to finish on a score of 34.70. The result puts them more than 6 points clear of their nearest rivals Clayton Fredericks and Bendigo. A clearly delighted Piggy commented:

"It’s my second season with Topper now and he’s really come on another level; this is definitely the best he’s gone and he’s now really a horse in with a shout at coming here next year. The whole competition has a real buzz about it and he has an excellent brain to cope with the atmosphere; it’s exciting and surreal to be here. It all looks great especially when you look up at the skyline and remember where we are."

"It’s a great thing for equestrian to be based so centrally at the Games where hopefully we can rally more public support and persuade more people that our fantastic sport is something they’ll want to watch and be a part of."

  1. Unfortunately I, & very many others, were unable to get tickets for the equestrian events - they are sold out - otherwise we would have been there to support our teams.
