Carl Hester on the national dressage championships: ‘I enjoyed it, but the prize money was appalling’

I VERY much enjoyed this year’s LeMieux National Dressage Championships, and being able to watch as I wasn’t riding. I really liked the new venue, Somerford Park; the main arena had an international feel to it, and there were some stand-out combinations in many of the classes I saw.

As always, it was particularly interesting to watch the young horse classes. Every single winner was one you’d like to take home. Becky Moody’s home-bred Jagerbomb, the seven-year-old champion and runner-up in both the prix st georges gold classes, certainly looks like one for the future, notably showing his talent for the grand prix movements in the prize-givings.
