Equestrian: Caroline Chew finishes seventh at Royal Windsor Horse Show

SINGAPORE - National equestrienne Caroline Chew posted a creditable finish at the Royal Windsor Horse Show last weekend, finishing seventh in the Grand Prix Dressage competition of the prestigious event.

Riding Tribiani, a 13-year-old gelding, Chew posted 68.750 in the field of 12 that included world-class riders such as Briton Carl Hester, a two-time Olympic medallist (team gold, 2016; team silver, 2012).

Hosts Britain swept the podium with Hester taking first place with 74.600. Hayley Watson-Greaves was second with 70.900 while Gareth Hughes was third with 70.660.

The result made Chew, 25, the top finisher in the Olympic Group that Singapore belongs to (Australasia), finishing ahead of New Zealand's Wendi Williamson and Hong Kong's Jackie Siu. It puts her in good stead as she prepares for the World Equestrian Games in the United States next year, and in her bid to qualify for the Olympic Games in 2020.

Chew, 25, and Tribiani had also partnered to win two silvers during the SEA Games held on home soil in 2015.
