The board of British Eventing has appointed Lucinda Green chairman of senior selectors of the British eventing team, following the recent resignation of Mandy Stibbe.
Lucinda said: “Mandy Stibbe and Yogi Breisner have done a fantastic job of putting in place a fair, open-minded system, and I don’t feel that there are any changes to be made to that. I hope I can continue the excellent work they have done with World Class Performance (WCP). I have the greatest of respect for Yogi and what he and Mandy have acheived.”
Senior selector Angela Tucker has been appointed to the ground jury at the European Championships in Punchestown and is therefore standing down from the selection committee. She has been replaced by Ian Stark, who retired from international competition at the Sydney Olympics.
“The board’s appointment of Ian under Lucinda’s chairmanship bodes well for an exciting year,” said WCP manager Yogi Breisner.
