Australian Eventer Chris Burton can do no wrong at the moment - The 31 year old, who recently gained selection to this first Olympic Games team on Australia's five member Eventing team, has beaten a world class contingent of riders over the weekend at the prestigious World Equestrian Festival in Aachen, Germany.
Burton and his 14 year old gelding Underdiscussion were third after two phases of competition and went on to produce a clear cross country round in the final phase of the CICO3* event to clinch victory.
Eventing competition will take place at Greenwich Park and gets underway on day one of the Olympic Games, just 20 days from now.
