All in a day’s work for China’s Alex Hua Tian claiming victory in Friday’s Advanced Medium at Somerford Park Premier League Dressage on board his Rio Olympic Ride Don Geniro.

Having just arrived home from China at 5am Friday morning, Alex had already been at Somerford to use the cross country facilities in the morning, went home to ride a few more and then returned with Don Geniro in the afternoon to compete in the Advanced Medium.

‘We won the Advanced Medium which is amazing! 71% so really happy, we’re off to Wiesbaden to compete ERM next week and couldn’t have had a more confidence giving final dressage test.’

It was a win win all round for this Cheshire house hold as Alex’s partner Sarah Higgins took second place with Davidoff.
