Outstanding Olympics

Outstanding Olympics

FALPRO would like to congratulate the British riders on a successful game in Rio.

The equestrian events at the Rio 2016 Olympics were held between the 6th and 19th of August at the national equestrian centre in Deodoro.  Medals were awarded in three disciplines Dressage, Showjumping and Eventing for both individual and team competitions.  Teams are made of up to four riders, all of whom are also competing for individual medals.

For a relatively small country we have produced some amazing results at this year’s Olympics.  Especially in the Equine disciplines. The hours of hard work that all the riders and their grooms put in really payed off at this year’s games with Nick Skelton and Big Star producing three breath taking clear rounds to finish in gold medal position in the individual show jumping.

The dressage team Carl Hester, Spencer Wilton, Charlotte Dujardin and Fiona Bigwood produced some mesmerising performances which secured them the team Silver.  The Dressage success continued with Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro retaining their individual gold medal.

The British eventing team William Fox-Pit, Pippa Funnell, Kitty King and Gemma Tattersall just missed out on the medals coming a well-deserved fifth place. 

FALPRO would like to congratulate all the Olympic athletes on their record breaking success at the Rio 2016 games.
