Law (GBR), riding the 11-year old gelding Shear L'eau, won the
11th leg of the FEI Eventing World Cup held at the Lulworth International
Horse Trials (GBR) from 25 through 27 July. The pair, whose final
result was 52.1, became convincing winners after performing a
good Dressage test (45.1) and scoring only one penalty point in
the Cross Country for exceeding the time allowed.
is Leslie Law's second participation in a World Cup qualifier.
He was also present in Chatsworth in May where he placed 5th riding
Matt Butler and earned 14 points. The 30 points that this victory
brings to Leslie place him among the leaders of the standings
and insure him qualification for the Final in Pau (FRA). Law,
currently 4th in the FEI World Eventing Rankings, is the second
British rider along with the Ranking's leader William Fox-Pitt
to win a World Cup qualifier.
Powell (GBR), riding the 14-year old gelding Flintstone IV, performed
the competition's best Dressage test (45.5) and placed 2nd with
a final result of 58.5 points. He was followed by Ireland's Sasha
Harrison on All Love du Fenaud.
performance of the young Irish rider Pip Peters should also be
noted. She performed the competition's only clear Cross Country
riding her own 10-year old gelding Tir Na Doone. This is all the
more remarkable given the heavy rain. She had only one fence down
in the Show Jumping but because of her average Dressage performance
(66.2), she took the 11th position. This is Pip's second World
Cup participation following her remarkable debut in Chatsworth
where she place 3rd following William Fox-Pitt and Pippa Funnell.

Cup qualifier at Werribee Park, Melbourne, where, despite a very
