Hester on top in Warwickshire

15 September 2012 / 20:26

Olympic gold medallist Carl Hester won Saturday's feature class at the National Dressage Championships in Warwickshire.

Hester, riding his London 2012 horse Uthopia, took the Dyon Grand Prix Championship by a comfortable margin.

The Gloucestershire-based star was part of Britain's gold medal-winning team at Greenwich Park alongside Charlotte Dujardin and Laura Bechtolsheimer.

And the Hester/Uthopia combination proved a class apart, scoring 76.55% to beat Bechtolsheimer and her back-up horse Andretti H into second spot on 73.34%.

Michael Eilberg took third with Half Moon Delphi, just in front of Gareth Hughes (DV Stenkjers Nadonna) and Henriette Andersen (Louis D'Or).
