In a Danish Senior Championship with just five points separating the gold, silver and bronze medals, Lone Bang Larsen took the top spot at these sunny Nationals held in Broholm, Denmark, on 7-9 June 2014. Scoring 226.362 points and claiming gold, Bang Larsen did miss a promised proposal for marriage from her boyfriend by just a fraction. Lars Petersen was just behind on 226.362 points to take silver and Mikala Munter Gundersen claimed bronze with 224.036 points. Gold medalist Lone had a really great weekend, filled with a lot of nerves. Her boyfriend has promised to propose to her if she rode an 80% test, and with a score of 79.5%, she felt that she stated shy of that proposal! "My boyfriend has always said that if I ride 80% on Fitou he will propose, so it was really close to a proposal this time," a thrilled brand new Danish champion told Eurodressage. "I think he got a bit nervous this weekend. So I am still waiting for the 80% and a proposal.”
