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.
The final British competition to perform on the first afternoon were Erin Jennings and Night Fury, competing as individuals. Erin rode a lovely test to finish on a mark of 36.8 and be lying 13th individually.
Our remaining three combinations will be in action tomorrow morning:
- 7.21am BST – Ella Howard and Midnight Mist
- 8.32am BST – Phoebe Sykes and Ive Dun Talking (Individual)
- 9.08am BST – Charlotte Cooke and Liscannor Tulira
