With 6th place after dressage, the team moved up to 4th after excellent marathon rounds from Wilf and Dan.

The cones course was tricky with no double-clears in the Horse Fours class, but consistent rounds from the British drivers moved them up the leader board into the Bronze Medal position behind Germany (2nd) and the Netherlands (1st) which is a positive start ahead of the European Championships for Horse Fours Donaueschingen, Germany in August.

Team Bowman-Ripley were delighted when their Head Groom, Louise Lilley, received the International Groomís award as itís great to see her hard work recognised!

Results - CAIO4*-H4 & CAI3*-H2 Valkenswaard (NED)
