The sensational partnership of Edward Gal and Moorlands Totilas made Dutch dressage history today when becoming the first combination from The Netherlands to win the World Championship Grand Prix Special title at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games™ in Kentucky, USA.  But this extraordinary pair are also on the brink of adding another record to the list they just keep on compiling.  If they can add Friday's Freestyle to their haul, then they will become the first partnership ever to take both titles, and on present form they look well-set for a hat-trick of gold after yesterday's team victory.
