There are only two British riders present at the first Longines Masters in Lausanne, but Great Britain is well represented in the results. In one of the most spectacular classes of the competition, the Masters Power, British rider Laura Renwick was the only one to clear 2.01m without penalty. While impressive it's not surprising, as 6-bar power events have historically been a British force.
Renwick demonstrated the fruits of her experience in the Masters Power aboard her equally seasoned mount, Top Dollar VI, against the Lake Geneva backdrop. "I'm feeling pretty good! Going in, I felt pretty good I think because this horse I've done a few six-bars with before. You can see a lot of power. He's a little bit difficult with the riding, but obviously once you get into a six-bar he knows his job. I was hoping for a good result today so I'm really pleased with how it turned out. I don't really do much with him at home. He's one of those horses that the less you do with him the better. It's best to save all of his energy for the ring. I knew he was capable of jumping over two meters, and it worked out really good today!” And what a demonstration it was!
