Charlotte and Valegro went on to comfortably win the Grand Prix Special despite having trouble with her one time changes. German Kristina Broring-Sprehe and her fabulous black stallion Desperados FRH were impressive in second place, in the Freestyle they moved up several gears to rapturous applause from the home crowd with a wonderful performance.

Nearly 3 hours of top class dressage makes up this wonderful DVD with the best from all the competitions.
FEI Longines European Eventing Championships Blair Castle 2015 Was £14.99 now £4.99 Price: £4.99 This was the first time Scotland had hosted an international equestrian event and the beautiful setting at Blair Castle in Perthshire was the spectacular venue.
The Germans were the odds on favourites going into the event and they proved why they are the World's No 1 country in eventing with a comprehensive all the way win in the team competition led by their superstar Michael Jung. Great Britain were a distant second for silver with France taking the bronze.
Michael Jung, riding the youngest horse in the competition, the 8 yr old Fischer Takinou, was one of only 3 clears over Ian Stark's attractive cross country course to be inside the optimum time, a target that became increasingly difficult to achieve as relentless rain on the Saturday heavily favoured the early starters.
Jung's usual polished clear round in the showjumping on the Sunday confirmed his superiority over fellow team mate and World Champion Sandra Auffarth with France's Thibaut Vallette grabbing bronze after Issy Taylor (GB) had one down showjumping on Briarlands Matilda.

Flexibles winning clear round on that final afternoon drew a standing ovation from the appreciative Dutch crowd who knew they had witnessed something special.
Flexible is described by Fellers as a family pet and has twice come back from serious injury proving that certain jumpers get better with age; the longevity of the partnership also proved crucial in such a pressurised finale.
