David riding Miss Caruso owned by Mrs Jane James and rider lead after the dressage on a score of 34.00 closely pursued by Charlotte Hachmeister of Germany on 36.90, and Alexis Gomez of France on 39.20.
Holly riding her own DHI Lupison was in 18th place on a score of 48.70.
The cross-country phase was a tale of two halves, those who went early in the running order had fine weather, and the going at that time was good. However a major weather front passed over the event with heavy rain lightening and thunder. The downpour akin to a tropical storm forced the organisers to halt the cross country for an hour. After the storm had passed those running in the second half of the field incurred considerable time penalties, and the ground in certain places became very difficult to ride.
David was anchorman for the team and went last, and suffered the worst of the conditions. He finished the cross-country day in 19th place, and Holly who was the first team member to go moved up to 2nd place after a faultless round within the time.
All the team horses trotted up sound, and Holly held her nerve in the show jumping with a carefully judged clear round to stay in 2nd place. The leading German rider had 2 fences in hand as she started the final phase. She had 2 poles down and had the final three fences to jump; the horse clipped the final pole but it in remained in the cup. Germany Gold, and Great Britain Silver in the individual category.
The Great Britain Team of Sophie Beaty, David Doel, Alex Liddle, and Holly Woodhead won the Bronze medal. The Irish Team winning Gold and the Germans winning the Silver medals.
- A Double of Wins for David Doel“After returning from Portugal with a Team Bronze medal in the U21 European Championships it was straight back to riding the youngsters; British Eventing and World class rider David Doel travelled just 10 miles to his local event with 7 horses. On the first day at Dauntsey Horse Trials (Wiltshire), David was second in the Intermediate Novice section riding Mocklers Hill Buster owned by Mrs Jane James. He followed this up with a win in the Intermediate section riding Earl Galante owned by Mr & Mrs Callaway with an outstanding dressage of 20. He went double-clear to finish on his dressage score. On the second day he won riding Get Set Autumn Star in the pre-Novice owned by Mrs & Mrs Barr. His eventing season comes to an end at Aldon at the end of the month where he will contest the 1* competition with three horses.”
