Britain’s disabled drivers are celebrating individual and team silver medals in the World Disabled Driving Championships
Great Britain’s drivers took the individual and team silver medals in the World Disabled Driving Championships in Germany.
James Marshall, Carol Porter and Judith Ralls travelled to Greven-Bocholt where the third World Championships were organised by the St Martin Riding and Driving School, together with the German Clinic for Therapeutic Riding.
Ten nations took part in the competition, which was run in conjunction with the German National Championships for horse pairs and pony teams.
There was little between the top three teams going into the final cone driving phase, but Karl-Bernard Kasken, the individual gold medal winner, led the home nation to team gold.
Great Britain’s Judith Ralls won the individual silver medal and with James Marshall only incurring half a time-fault, they put the British team firmly in the silver medal position, ahead of the USA in bronze.
