With a bit of luck and hard work British rider Ruth Edge and Two Thyme won the four-star three-day event in Luhmuhlen at the weekend for the first time. They went into the show jumping with a 6.4 penalty lead but they had a fence down and it came down to time penalties and collected 16 penalties in total finishing just ahead of second place.
Finishing second with just a mere 0.4 penalties behind was Dirk Schrade and Gadget de la Cere from Germany.
