William Funnell has been knocking on the door of the British championship squad for many years and a current strong run of form with Cortaflex Mondriaan has seen him selected to represent his country at his first World Championships.
Twenty-year-old Tim has demonstrated that he can mix it with the very best by becoming a regular member of the British nations cup squad with Omelli. The World Equestrian Games will be his first senior international championship, but he has previous worn the Union Jack at junior and young rider European championships.
Meet Robert Smith
Robert Smith has become a British team regular in recent years. With Marius Claudius looking back to his best, this partnership will be a real asset to the British show jumping squad in Aachen.
There will be few riders at WEG who can boast such an impressive career as John Whitaker. He is renowned for a talent to get the very best out of horses that are catch rides, giving him a great chance if he can make it through to the individual final.
Michael Whitaker has been a mainstay of the British team at international championships for the past 20 years and he shows no signs of that being about to change anytime soon
