Great Britain's Lee Pearson has claimed bronze in the grade IB dressage on his horse Gentleman.

Pearson's score of 74.200 was almost good enough for silver, but he was edged out of second by Katja Karjalainen of Finland with his 74.250.

Peto Puch of Austria took gold by a huge margin with a score of 79.150 on Fine Feeling.

The result means that Pearson does not equal the Paralympic record gold haul of 11.
