Richard Davison to unveil new dressage to music freestyle at Olympia

  • TRIPLE Olympian Richard Davison will unveil a new freestyle routine on his London 2012 hope Artemis at the H&H-sponsored Olympia World Cup qualifier (17 December).

    The specially recorded piece Artemis In Motion features Elton John classics played by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra (RLPO).

    Mr Davison said: “To have the musical genius of Elton John and the RLPO behind our freestyle is mind-blowing.”

    The Netherlands’ freestyle expert, Joost Peters, choreographed the programme to match the nine-year-old’s every footfall.

    The idea came from Artemis’s joint owner, the Countess of Derby, whose husband is president of the RLPO.
