Top Competition Reveals Very Best in Horsepower

Peter Storr became National Dressage Champion for the second consecutive year at the Mercedes-Benz National Dressage Championships in Warwickshire, 21st – 23rd September, where the cream of British Dressage riders and horses gathered to contest National Championship titles at all levels.

Nicky Barrett won the Butchers Pet Care Grand Prix on Saturday, but had Peter Storr and Emile Faurie hot on her heels with all three riders' scores within one percent.

The title of National Dressage Champion 2001 was decided on Sunday, with the scores from the Butchers Pet Care Grand Prix Kür being added to the Grand Prix scores from the previous day.  Peter Storr and Gambrinus scored 74.31%, which put them 3% clear of Nicky and Giorgio S, and well into the lead.  A superb performance by Emile Faurie and Reuters Rascher Hopes put him into second place, but Peter's dazzling display had confirmed him as National Dressage Champion 2001.

There was tension in the air on Saturday evening too.  In the floodlit Blue Waters Hotel Intermediaire 1 Kür, 21 year-old Becky Moody took the lead with the bay gelding Kwadraat.  However the last combination to go was Carl Hester, who won the Horsehage Medium Open Championship earlier in the day with Dolendo.  In this class he rode the 17hh bay gelding Toblerone IV and snatched victory from Becky by just 0.67%. Completing his hat trick on Sunday, Carl won the Winergy Advanced Medium with the 16.2hh bay gelding Escapado

Despite being pipped at the post in the Blue Waters Hotel Intermediaire 1 Kür, Becky Moody and Kwadraat did not go home empty handed.  They won the Derby House Saddlery / Dressage Horse International Prix St Georges with 69.75% and the Passier Intermediaire 1 with 69.35%.

Another successful combination was 14 year-old Anne-Marie Perry and the 15.2hh bay gellding Forrest Fire, who won the Kraiburg Elementary Restricted Championship with 66.67%.
