Winners were crowned in four age groups across each of the Olympic disciplines at the 2021 NEXGEN young horse championships (23-25 September), which has proved hugely popular since it launched last year.
“This is a new series showcasing the very best of British-based equine talent in the three Olympic disciplines, and we have big plans and high hopes for the future,” said NEXGEN director Victoria Wright. “We’d like to emulate Germany’s Bundeschampionat, and we will keep working towards producing an event of that significance.”
