Britain’s junior eventers lead after cross-country

  • Britain’s junior eventers are still on track to take double gold medals after the cross-country at their junior European Championships in Avenches, Switzerland.

    The three British team riders whose scores counted after dressage all went clear inside the time.

    Laura Collett retains her leading position individually with Rayef (pictured), while her team-mates Emily Llewellyn (Pardon Me II) and Marina Lawson-Smith (Fancy That II) also stay on their dressage scores.

    Fourth team member Harry Dzenis (Spider VI) picked up 20pen at a corner, while individual Rosie Stewart (Get Up And Go II) had problems at the penultimate fence.

    Britain’s other individual Fergus Payne (Secret Avalanche) went clear inside the time.
