A piece of history from Hickstead – the magic British team with David Broome on Heatwave, Harvey Smith on Salvador, Paddy McMahon on  Pennwood Forge Mill and Graham Fletcher on Tauna Dora. Those were really the days!

He won the European Championship gold medal in Hickstead  1973 a head of Alwin Schockemöhle and Hubert Parot. In that same year he also won the King George V Gold Cup and the Victor Lodorum at the Royal International Horse Show. He competed in 1980 World Cup final in Baltimore, USA.
