German Eventer Julia Krajewski treated spectators at the Fédération Equestre Internationale World Equestrian Games Tryon 2018 (WEG) to one of the lowest-scoring dressage rides of all time as she finished the first day 7.2 points clear of the field.

The German and her mount Chipmunk FRH have been in scintillating form in the dressage arena this season and the duo lived up to their billing as one of the favorites for gold with a mark of 19.90, the third best dressage score ever recorded at a WEG.

Home-hero Boyd Martin fed off the packed stands to saunter his way to second place, with a score of 27.10, while Great Britain’s Piggy French lies third, just 0.70 points behind. The second half of the field in the Mars eventing dressage will go on Friday in Tryon
