Equestrianism: GB dressage off the pace

Olympic dressage gold medallists Charlotte Dujardin and Carl Hester face a sizeable task to keep alive Great Britain's attempt at a successful European team title defence in Herning, Denmark.

Britain's four-strong team contains two debutants in Michael Eilberg and Gareth Hughes. Eilberg guided Half Moon Delphi to a solid score of 72.264 per cent, but Hughes found it tough going on DV Stenkjers Nadonna, posting 60.866 per cent.
