Carl claims 61st national dressage title
Carl Hester and Dances With Woves

Carl Hester and his gold medal-winning Olympic partner Uthopia wowed the capacity crowd at Stoneleigh winning the Dyon Grand Prix Championships in style, scoring 76.55%, ahead of his team mate Laura Bechtolsheimer and Andretti H on 73.34%. <P>

In spite of a blip in the flying changes, it was a breathtaking performance full of power and talent which had the hushed audience on the edge of their seats and the arena erupted as the combination performed their final salute. <P>

It’s already proving a weekend to remember for Carl, having picked up two titles at Stoneleigh over the first two days of the championships with Aram Gregory’s 10-year-old gelding Dances With Wolves yesterday – the Winergy Prix St Georges (74.34%) and Intermediate I (73.34%). <>

"How does it feel to win 61 titles? Well, I suppose I have to think about getting to 100 now!" said Carl, who now goes forward to contest the Freestyle Championships on Sunday.
