Eventing competition is underway at the European Championships for Ponies

The eventing got underway this afternoon at the European Championships for Ponies at Strzegom Horse Trials in Poland and  our riders representing Great Britain have for us off to a great start.

Pippa Royle was the first of the Brits into the arena at 1.37pm BST this afternoon – only the second combination to go. She delivered a score of 35.8 with Midnight Engagement, which left them lying in 11th place individually after Day 1.

Lucy Baguley and Glencarrig Dolphin were next up for Britain, the second of our team riders. In the baking heat of a stunning day at Strzegom they performed a beautiful test for a mark of 33.5, which was good enough to put them into 6th place individually at the half way stage of the dressage.
