Emily King celebrates her GCSE results

Young event rider Emily King is planning her riding career after scoring highly in her GCSEs.

“I got four As and four Bs,” Emily told H&H.

“I don’t really know how – I think they must have been mixed up with someone else’s! The plan is now to finish the competition season, then a friend and I are going out to Malm ¶ [Sweden] to work and train over the winter in a showjumping yard.”

Emily, daughter of London Olympic team silver medallist Mary, will spearhead the six-strong British squad for the junior European Championship (Poland, 6-9 September).
