It was a brilliant opening round of world class action in Madrid today, as Great Britain’s Laura Renwick and her stunning 8-year-old gelding MHS Washington (Obos Quality x Cavalier Royale) took the CSI5* 1.45m Volvo Trophy.

The pair beat an impressive field of 57 international riders in the two phase competition, jumping clear with a time of 29.46s in the second part. Hot on her heels was America’s Laura Kraut who rode the beautiful Andretti S (Corland x Animo) to second in 29.95s, just tenths off the British Laura’s time. The two created an impressive gap to the remaining clear riders, with third place rider Andreas Kreuzer and Baloukira (Balou du Rouet x Stakkato) crossing the line in 33.97s, four seconds behind.
