Hughes Pips Dujardin for Inter I Title at 2019 British Dressage Championships

Eurodressage 13/09/2019: "Gareth Hughes scored a resounding victory in the Intermediaie I Championship riding Judy Firmston Williams and his own Sandro Hit sired Sintano Van Hof Olympia with an athletic performance to score 75.21%."

Gareth and Sintano Van Hof Olympia were on song and well settled to the task at hand. The nine year old, discovered in the Netherlands by Rebecca when set the task to "find something really special" by Judy, really impressed yesterday but today took it to the next level.

"He's pretty nice, isn't he?!" joked Gareth. "Today he felt like a Grand Prix horse in there. He has all the talent but now just needs the patience. He's quite like Classic Briolinca to ride; the harder you work them, the more they love it but they're super sensitive. I'm thrilled for his owner Judy who bought him as a six year old, we're so excited by him. The Grand Prix will really suit him as it'll close him up more but for now it's a case of building confidence, strength and security."

‘Hotmail and I will get to know each other while training. We'll see after that, when we can start. I first want to become a good combination with him and work with him towards the Young Riders. I started Young Riders with Cupido a few times and that went quite well. If we can continue like this, we'll go to the EC this season.’
