National dressage champion Michael EilbergCongratulations to British national dressage champion Michael Eilberg. Michael rode his father Ferdie’s Marakov to win the prestigious title for the first time in his career at Stoneleigh.

Michael then headed to Horse of the Year Show with the outstanding British-bred mare Woodlander Farouche to compete in the Mount St John Future Elite Dressage Championship. Danish rising star Selten HW, ridden by Anders Dahl, beat the British partnership, but Michael was keen to point out that Selten HW is two years older and more established at the level. Despite a few green mistakes, the overall quality of Farouche’s work was outstanding.

British Dressage continues to enjoy a succesful period on the international stage. Charlotte Dujardin is still on top of the world with the wonderful Valegro. She became the first ever dressage rider to concurrently hold double Olympic, European and world titles at the World Equestrian Games earlier this year.
