The trio who made British history by winning the country’s first ever dressage Olympic medal are to be reunited for the Britain’s National Dressage Convention in November.
After three days of close fought competition, Laura Tomlinson (then Bechtolsheimer), Charlotte Dujardin and Carl Hester climbed on top of a podium at the 2012 London Olympic Games to receive their team gold medals.
Joining Hester and Dujardine who were announced late last month, Tomlinson is the latest high-profile name to be added to the presenting panel forthis year’s ‘Best of British’ National Dressage Convention, held at Hartpury College in Gloucestershire, from November 21 to 22.
Tomlinson will be focusing on small tour with ridden and coaching sessions. With her exciting string of young horses featuring Duvals Capri Sonne Jr, Unique VII, Polar Bear and Dolcevendy, Tomlinson has built up a great reputation of producing horses as she searches for her next Olympic partner to fill the gap left by the retirement of her 2012 team gold and individual bronze medalist, Mistral Hojris.
The convention’s main host will be BBC presenter and dressage fan Lee McKenzie, a presenter and pitlane reporter on BBC’s coverage of Formula 1. She was also a presenter at last year’s Commonwealth Games and is a reporter and interviewer at Wimbledon. She will be joined by BD’s Training Director Paul Hayler, an international rider, leading trainer and list 1 judge.
