Paget in second at Burghley
Fri, 31 Aug 2012 8:42a.m.
New Zealand Olympian Jonathan Paget is in second place after the opening day of dressage at the Burghley International Horse Trials in England.
Paget, who was part of the bronze medal-winning eventing team at the London Olympics, was in excellent touch on Clifton Lush to be just 0.7 penalty points behind British leader Ruth Edge riding Rogersdale.
Paget finished fifth on the same horse at Burghley last year.
There were solid starts for two other New Zealanders as 43 riders completed the dressage on Friday (NZT).
Lucy Jackson was 12th on Willy Do on 52.0 penalty points while two-time winner Andrew Nicholson on Calico Joe - one of his two mounts - was 15th on 53.0.
The other half of the field were to ride on the second day, including New Zealanders Caroline Powell and Mark Todd - the latter a five-time Burghley champion.
