More dressage records were broken by a British dressage rider when the extremely talented Phoebe Peters from Moreton-in-Marsh, Gloucestershire secured two individual golds at the Pony European Dressage Championships on Saturday 27 July & Sunday 28 July. Firstly, 14 year old Phoebe and her pony SL Lucci won the individual test with a pb score of 79% then they went on to set a new pony freestyle record of 84% to win her second gold on Sunday. This is the first time Britain has ever won individual pony dressage gold medals. Phoebe is based with and trained by Peter Storr who is also the GB Pony Team Trainer.
The British team won bronze, finishing behind Germany in Gold and the Netherlands who took silver.
