The superb facilities at AELEC provided the backdrop for many wonderful performances by some of the county’s leading dressage combinations, most notably by a number of Hanoverian warmbloods. Watching these performances, it was easy to understand why the Hanoverian horse has won the "Best of All" Trophy, awarded by The World Breed Federation for Sport Horses, every year since its inception and why many of the world’s top riders chose to ride a Hanoverian. During the week-end Hanoverian bred horses shone and dominated the placings at the Championships, with the following major results being awarded to registered Hanoverian horses:
