EUROPEAN-based Australian dressage riders — and cousins — Lyndal and Kristy Oatley achieved successful results in ­Vidauban in France at the World Dressage Masters CDI competition.

Elite squad member Lyndal scored 70.6 per cent in the saddle of Sandro Boy in the CDI five-star Grand Prix and a 72.92 per cent in the Grand Prix Freestyle which saw them finishing sixth for both competitions. Kristy is aiming for a place on the World Equestrian Games team and, after some time out of the saddle, finished well in the CDI three-star competition with Louisa 34 finishing sixth in the Grand Prix (66.36 per cent) and fourth in the Grand Prix Special with 67.54 per cent.
