It's the stuff dreams are made of. It has been sixty years since we last won showjumping team Gold at the Olympics - and today the British team won at our home Games.
After the second round, the team of Nick Skelton, Ben Maher, Scott Brash and Peter Charles were on eight faults, which meant they had to jump-off for the Dutch team for gold.
When the second Dutch rider Maikel Van Der Vlouten had eight faults and Marc Houtzager had four, it took the pressure off Peter Charles. Riding into the arena on Vindicat, he produced a textbook clear to secure the gold for Britain.
The Saudi Arabian team, who were leading after yesterday's first round, secured bronze.
Nick Skelton, who is attending his sixth Games, said: "What a place to do it. I have got a wonderful horse and it’s a dream come true. It is great for our country and great for our sport."
Nick, Ben and Scott will now have a day of rest before Wednesday's individual final.
"Tripple X felt the best he’s jumped over the last two days," commented Ben. "He was finding it all quite easy and I was having to hold him back. It was always a long distance to fence 10 and I thought it was going to make it easy but I ended up a bit of a way off. It was unfortunate, but my horse was fantastic and one down isn’t a bad round.
Scott Brash also paid tribute to his horse Sanctos. “He was amazing today. He didn’t fault and he’s just got better and better; he has just been amazing. Being here has been fantastic, the crowd are unbelievable and I don’t think I’ll ever experience anything like this again. It really has been the best day of my life.”
