Natasha Baker, who trains with Emile Faurie at Milton-under-Wychwood, decribed striking gold in the individual Grade 2 dressage as “amazing”.

Riding Cabral, the 22-year-old set a Grade 2 record of 76.857 per cent in the competition on Saturday for athletes with reasonable balance and abdominal control including aputees.
