A low-low dressage score of 20.9 put Britain’s Nicola Wilson and the ten-year-old Holsteiner JL Dublin solidly in the lead on day one of FEI European Championships dressage. As Tilly Berendt noted in her report from today in Avenches, Switzerland, the exceptional score isn’t just an international personal best for JL Dublin — it’s the best test of Nicola’s career, too.

Will anyone be able to best it on day two? You can be sure that tomorrow’s heavy hitters — including World Champions Ros Canter and Allstar BMichael Jung and fischerWild WaveKitty King and Vendredi Biats, who were the highest-placed Brits at the 2019 European Championships, Swiss superstar Felix Vogg and Cartania, Ireland’s Padraig McCarthy and Leonidas II, and, of course, reigning two-time European Champions Ingrid Klimke and SAP Hale Bob OLD  won’t be holding back.

Be sure to keep it tuned to EN for live coverage throughout the rest of the week!
