The day belonged to Nicole Uphoff, who won the individual title for the second time with a flawless performance on Rembrandt. So good were they that Isabell Werth, on Gigolo, was a full 75 points behind. Bronze went to a policeman, Klaus Balkenhol, who actually used to ride his horse, Goldstern, on the beat.
Uphoff was less sure-footed on two legs. She tripped as she stepped up to collect her medal, and almost fell flat on her face.
