Highlights from the first week at WEG

British Team wins Eventing Gold

The WEG video gives a nice compilation of the different disciplines highlighted at the World Equestrian Games.

However, for me the highlight of the first week at WEG was the Eventing. How disappointing for Ingrid Klimke to bring down the back rail of the final jump in Stadium? With no rails in hand, it dropped her from first to third in the individual standings.

Ros Canter and AllstarBThat left a beaming Rosalind Canter and Allstar B to earn the individual gold and be part of the team gold.

Ros led the British team to its first world Gold medal since 2010 and the lowest team score in world championship history. It is the first time Britain has won both individual and team gold at a single WEG, and Ros is the first British individual winner since Zara Tindall claimed victory 12 years ago in Aachen.

“I don’t think it’s sunk in. Allstar B was absolutely amazing, a hero,” Ros exclaimed. “I had an amazing experience in there. I kept saying to myself ‘just let him do his job’ and I am so proud. He is phenomenal. There were quite a few tears when I found out, which isn’t normal for me.

Ireland finished in second place, France in third and Japan had a surprisingly strong finish in fourth place. The US team finished in eighth place.
