    Dressage silver for inspirational trailblazer Hartel

    Helsinki 1952 were the first Games at which dressage truly opened up to the world. Previously, it had been the preserve of military officers, but was now opened up to non-commissioned officers and even to civilians. Most notably of all was the presence of four women among the entrants, immediately transforming dressage from one of the most exclusive disciplines to one of the more inclusive.
