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."
