Indian equestrian, Fouaad Mirza and his horse Seigneur Medicott broke a 20-year-old dressage national record on Thursday at the 2022 FEI World Championship Eventing in Italy.

Mirza, who is the only Indian to qualify for this year’s world championships, broke the national record held by Imtiaz Anees and his horse Spring Invader at Jerez de la Frontera in 2002. Mirza’s 30.1 dressage score bettered the Anees’ score of 39.6 from twenty years ago.

Mirza is competing in three events – dressage, show jumping, and cross country – at the World Eventing Championships. At the end of the dressage stage, Mirza finished 12th among all riders.

Dressage is described as a form of horse riding performed in exhibitions and competitions. In this event, the horse and rider are expected to perform from memory a series of predetermined movements.

Mirza achieved a milestone in Indian equestrian last year when he became the third Indian to qualify for the Olympics after Indrajeet Lamba (1996) and Imtiaz Anees (2000).
