Quarrycrest Echo was superb in Luhmuhlen. A 30.5 dressage score had him very much in touch with the leaders and he made nothing of a testing 4* cross country track, finishing comfortably inside the optimum time.

Frustratingly, Piggy was given 50 penalties for missing a flag at fence 11b, made all the more galling when the pair went on to jump one of just six showjumping clear rounds on the final day.

However, ‘Red’ has definitely proved himself a 4* horse.
