Britain won the final eventing Nations Cup of the series at Boekelo this weekend. Team GBR entered the final showjumping phase nearly 30 penalties ahead of the field, and some class rounds only widened the lead.

Laura Collett was the first British team rider to jump and went clear on Mr Bass to finish fifth individually. Izzy Taylor was next in the ring and had just one fence down riding Trevidden to finish seventh.

Sponsored rider Oliver Townend topped off the British team effort with a faultless performance onboard Cooley SRS, confirming Britain's team victory and leaving the duo with a podium finish in third place.

Britain were truly on flying form and had a fourth top-10 individual finisher, Sarah Bullimore and Lilly Corinne, who had just one pole down in the final phase.
