In preparation for the 2010 World Equestrian Games at the Kentucky Horse Park, Australian driver Gavin Robson was based for a number of years in Ohio, and he became a familiar face to quite a few U.S. drivers. This year, Gavin’s Australian teammate, of course, is none other than the two-time defending World Champion, Boyd Exell.

Boyd will drive his dressage test tomorrow morning, but Gavin drove his this afternoon. We’re now at the mid-point of the afternoon session, and Gavin currently stands in eleventh place with a score of 62.36 penalty points.

After his test, Gavin said that his team is really young and still a little green. “For the two lead horses, this is the first time in competition with them in the lead, so I am really happy with them.”
