Two riders chosen for junior eventing championship

  • Laura Collett (pictured) and Emily Llewellyn will both ride on the British squad at the junior European Eventing Championships in Avenches, Switzerland (2-5 August).

    Reigning junior European Champion Laura will defend her title on either Osberton CIC** winner Opposition Legacy or Rayef, who was recently eighth in the CCI** at Houghton.

    Emily has been selected with either Society Spice — her partner in the silver medal-winning junior team last year and when winning the recent under-18 national championship at Chepstow — or Pardon Me II, 22nd in the CCI** at Houghton.

    Seven other riders have been shortlisted for the squad, with the final four being chosen after Barbury Castle (7-8 July). They are Louise Bradley (Meadows Whisper), Eleanor Barns-Graham (Shadow Light), Harry Dzenis (Spider VI), Camilla Earnshaw (Bishops Law), Caroline Harris (The Lapdancer II), Marina Lawson-Smith (Fancy That II) and Fergus Payne (Secret Avalanche and French Gypsy).

    All of these riders apart from Louise and Harry will be in action at the CCI* at Avenches, Switzerland next week.
