Windsor: Boyd Exell and Jan de Boer take the lead

The first Dressage Day at the Royal Windsor Horse Show produced two winners today. Reigning World Champion Boyd Exell from Australia has taken the lead in the Horse Fours Class, while 2007 World Champion Jan de Boer is heading the Pony Fours Class.

Apart from a single rain shower, the first Dressage Day at the Royal Windsor Horse Show went very well. The circumstances in Windsor Home Park can be called ideal for the drivers, who are now stabled within the main Show Grounds. The International Driving Grand Prix is now completely part of this prestigious event, which also hosts four-start Dressage and Show Jumping competitions.

The unbeatable Dutch Team have taken a comfortable lead in the Nations Cup, ahead of Belgium and Germany.
