The brow bands were designed and made by Robin Brown of Sarasota, Florida for dressage-news.com to honor riders who achieve 80 per cent at Grand Prix.

Only 11 riders on 12 different horses have achieved the feat since Anky van Grunsven became the first to do so on Salinero in 2006.

Laura Tomlinson of Great Britain received her award last month for 80 per cent performances on Mistral Hojris.

The others are Adelinde Cornelissen of the Netherlands on Jerich Parzival, Steffen Peters of the United States on Ravel, Matthias Alexander Rath of Germany on Totilas, Helen Langehanenberg of Germany on Damon Hill, Kristina Sprehe of Germany on Desperados and Isabell Werth of Germany on Bella Rose.
