British number one ranked dressage rider Emma Hindle took the grand prix special at CDI Braunschweig, Germany last week (8-12 March) on her World Equestrian Games ride, Lancet.
Hindle, who is based in Germany, achieved her best grand prix special score to date with Lancet – an impressive 71.8%.
The show marked the pair’s first outing since the beginning of December. In the grand prix they scored 70.63% to take third position.
“Lancet has been getting better and better and has been giving me a very positive feeling at home,” said Emma who is trained by Kyra Kyrklund and Richard White.
“I was disappointed with the grand prix as I did not get that same feeling and we made a small mistake, but we still earned more than 70%. In the special, I had him a little sharper and it worked a treat.”
Fiona Bigwood, who is also based in Germany, finished third in the grand prix freestyle and sixth in the grand prix with Mr G De Lully.
