A fine performance from Emma Hindle on Lancet saw Great Britain take second place after the first day of the Olympic dressage event in Hong Kong.

Hindle, 33, scored 71.125%, moving into second in the individual qualifying behind Germany's Heike Kemmer.

Team-mate Jane Gregory produced a disappointing performance on Lucky Star, scoring 63.375%.

British dressage Rider of the Year for 2008 Laura Bechtolsheimer will compete on Thursday.

The 23-year-old recently achieved a record 75.33% score by a British rider in an international grand prix at Olympia.

The Netherlands lead the team standings with 70.250%, with Sweden in third on 66.583%.

Gregory admitted she had been disappointed with her below-par performance.

"I am cross with myself," she said. "It is very much inward frustration as I thought I could put him (Lucky Star) up to the scores we want.

"He probably read a little tension in me."
