Laura Collett and London 52 continue their winning ways at this “mini Olympics”, and the world champion wins on her dressage score
LAURA COLLETT and her five-star winner London 52 continued their run of blistering form with victory in the Dassett Eventing CCI4*-S section A (pictured), while reigning world champion Ros Canter claimed the other section aboard rising star Lordships Graffalo.
