My horse performed brilliantly.
He was unbelievable.’ Although Britain has led the field in para dressage for some years, competition was fierce with the event attracting 19 teams and individual riders from 34 nations.
Silver medal position in the team event went to Germany and the bronze to Norway.
Over the three days of competition, Simon also gained a third place in the team championship for riders with his level of disability and a fourth place in the individual test.
Other members of the British team also came away with class medals including golds.
The next major event for Simon is the British Dressage Para Championships at Stoneleigh, Warwickshire in September when Simon will be defending the grade three title he won last year on Ocean Diamond.
