The team was split last weekend, with Gio at the World Championships in Pratoni and Kathryn at Blenheim.
Duke of Champions was Gio’s partner for the Italian team, and the pair did a great dressage test scoring 27.7.
Clear round a testing cross country track, just adding some time penalties, a couple of rails fell on the final day – but still a great result for a relatively new combination.
Meanwhile, Kathryn and Cloud K were contesting the 8/9yo 4*S. ‘Biscuit’ pulled out his best result of the year, posting a 31.7 dressage score.
One show jump down and a steady clear across country left them mid-field.
