British riders confirmed for Olympic test event

  • With the Olympic test event in Greenwich Park less than two weeks away, details of the British squad have been announced.

    William Fox-Pitt riding Gaucho, Pippa Funnell with Billy Shannon and Piggy French on DHI Topper W will be representing Team GBR at the two-star event.

    Other senior riders, such as H&H columnist Tina Cook and Mary King, will be attending as spectators to get a feel for the venue.

    And although the test event is only for eventers, the British Equestrian Federation told H&H that “most of the senior World Class performance athletes from all disciplines” have been invited.

    Horse & Hound will be on site at Greenwich for all four days of the test event with daily reports, blogs and photo galleries published online. A full report packed with expert analysis, plus reaction from the riders, will be published in Horse & Hound magazine (14 July issue)
