Unsurprisingly Michael Jung holds onto his lead overnight after Burghley Horse Trials Dressage Day 1, having scored 34.2. One of only three to have slipped into the 30’s. He is joined by Andrew Hoy and Rutherglen on 37.8, and his fellow countryman Niklas Bschorer who scored 39.2 with Tom Tom Go 3.
Tomorrow should provide a good reshuffle of the leader board, although there is less than a handful that could possibly trouble Michael Jung’s lead, and he still has his multiple championship winning horse to come.
In the press conference at the end of the day Andrew, Michael & Niklas all agreed the cross country course was a good 4-star challenge they were looking forward to. You can hear more of their thoughts on Burghley and their dressage performance below.
I’ll be back with more later. Until then here are the important links for the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials 2015:
