Carl Hester’s superb grand prix debut on field-kept championship prospect

Carl Hester made a stunning show ring debut with his future team prospect, En Vogue.

The pair scored just under 78% in the grand prix special on 19 September, during one of a series of events held at Hartpury, and judged by four five-star international judges.

“I wanted to have a bash at the special, as that is a very important test being the one that will decide the team medals at the Tokyo Olympics, and I was really excited about what Vogue produced,” said Carl, who took over the ride on En Vogue, Charlotte Dujardin’s 11-year-old Jazz x Contango gelding, in February this year, but had yet to ride him in the ring owing to the coronavirus pandemic.
