Oliver Barrett, a HSC 2022 graduate from NSW leads the field in the CCI3*Dressage after day one and is also leading in the contest for the Bates Young Rider Championship which will be announced on Sunday.
"My horse Special loves the Dressage and has been in top form, so to have a win today was quite a good feeling. The Cross Country course looks immaculate and I love Cross Country. Galloping through the city - it doesn't get any better. To have the opportunity to ride here is something I am really looking forward to," said Barrett.
