Hester, 56, meanwhile has a lot of experience and is competing in his sixth Olympics and was on the same team with Dujardin who won medals in the last two Games.

Speaking after making her Olympic debut this weekend, Team GB’s Charlotte Fry, 25, said: “I was really happy with it. It couldn’t be better, to be honest.

Of his mount, Everdale, Fry said, “He really knew this was a big opportunity. He was so focused today. It was such a great feeling. We have really grown together and built a great partnership. I enjoyed every second, and he felt like he enjoyed it too.

“You never know how it will feel when you step into the arena, and every arena is different, but I really trust him and he really trusts me, so that kind of situation doesn’t worry us too much. “
