Eighty competitors representing twenty one nations set out on the four days of competition to decide team and individual honours.
Team favourites were undoubtedly the reigning European champions Great Britain and despite trailing Germany after the dressage phase they would sweep to victory with their three top riders William Fox-Pitt, Mary King and Nicola Wilson all finishing on their dressage scores.
Fox-Pitt also claimed the individual silver medal on Cool Mountain ahead of New Zealand’s Andrew Nicholson riding Nereo, who also steered his country to team bronze.
The surprise package in the team competition was Canada with their three lady riders all going clear and inside the time over Mike Etherington-Smith’s cross country course, which set up their silver medal, the first medal they have won in the sport since gold at the World Championships back in 1978 which were also held in Lexington.
However a class above the rest was the individual gold medallist Michael Jung of Germany riding his brilliant 10 yr old La Biosthetique-Sam FBW. He would lead from start to finish to secure an outstanding victory.
