Britain’s eventers take double gold at young rider Europeans

  • Britain claimed both gold medals today after the final show jumping phase of the young rider European Championships at Kreuth, Germany.

    Emily Llewellyn (pictured) jumped clear on Pardon Me II to move up from second to take the individual gold and lead the Jump Savings-sponsored squad to team gold.

    Ben Hobday also picked up an individual medal, rising from fifth overnight to collect the bronze with Uptons Who.

    Dani Cuomo (Ballin Willow) added nothing to her dressage score to provide the final team mark to count, after Georgie Spence (Skylight) slipped down the order today with 12 jumping faults.

    Britain’s two individual riders, Emily Galbraith and Sarah Stretton, also completed inside the top 20.
