Dutch star, Edward Gal, made it a back-to-back double when coming out on top at the opening leg of the Reem Acra FEI World Cup™ Dressage 2015/2016 Western European League at Odense in Denmark today. Last season he rode to victory at this event with the gelding Glock’s Undercover, but this time around he triumphed with the stallion Glock’s Voice, pinning the host country’s Anna Kasprzak and Donnperignon into runner-up spot and Agnete Kirk Thinggaard and Jojo AZ into third.

It wasn’t the easiest of victories however, as Glock’s Voice showed some tense moments during his winning test.    â€œHe felt better today, but he was still a bit nervous”, said the 45-year-old rider who includes the 2010 FEI World Cup™ Dressage title amongst his many achievements. “He felt good at the start, but he got edgy as we went along. However it was better than the Grand Prix. It was his first indoor show, so all things considered it was a good result”, the Dutchman said this evening.
