Franky Reid-Warrilow from Powys is the 2015 CIC 2* European Eventing Champion having won individual gold last week at Helvoirt, in the Netherlands. She was also in the silver medal winning GB team. Franky was riding her own Dolley Whisper with whom she also won the CCI 2* at Weston Park last autumn and the CIC 2* at Somerley Park this Spring.
Meanwhile, Gloucestershire rider Ella Hitchman has just completed the XC clear and without time penalties at the Young Rider European Eventing Championships as a member of the British team. The event is at Strzegom in Poland. The GB team were in Gold medal position after the dressage and if Will Furlong goes clear XC will remain at the top of the leaderboard going in to tomorrow’s SJ.
Louise Harwood, from Eardisley in Herefordshire, had a great Bicton winning the open intermediate section with Jenga and an intermediate section with Balladeer Miller Man. Louise has both Mr Potts and Whitson entered for Burghley, so go and cheer her on!
