Harry Charles, the son of Olympic gold medallist Peter, is back at his school desk this morning, the day after winning the pony grand prix at Hagen Future Champions CSIO, Germany.

“Home after a fantastic weekend in Hagen,” tweeted Peter Charles. “Harry’s win in the toughest grand prix in the world was a brilliant gift for Father’s Day!

Harry, 13, won by just over a second on Murka’s Moneymaker (pictured top at Scope last year), who headed another class earlier in the week.

Meanwhile, the rest of the young Brits were also on top form. The Nations Cup pony squad beat Germany, while the juniors finished second in their Nations Cup, just behind the French.

British riders Graham Babes (Hoimarks Rosetta), Emily Ward (Wizard VIII), Faye Adams (Cisco Bay II) and Laura Robinson (Jonti) all won individual classes.
