Roger Campbell travelled from his base in Germany to represent Great Britain at the Royal Windsor International Horse Show.

Drawn 4th to start in the seven strong Pony Fours class, Roger performed a solid dressage test to finish in 4th place on a score of 59.37, which was 13.12 points behind the overnight leader, Jan de Boer from the Netherlands.

Roger is well known as a marathon specialist, but a second place finish in this phase allowed Jan de Boer to slightly extend his lead to just over 17 penalties from Roger who remained in 4th after the first two phases of the competition.

In a nail biting final cones phase, Roger kept his nerve and drove an accomplished double clear, the only one in the class to do so. This put pressure on the leaders and Roger crept up the score board with his team of grey ponies.

However, itís a 3 phase event and this proved critical when Jan de Boer had an uncharacteristic cones round to drop to third giving Roger a fantastic victory in the FEI 3* event.
