TREC riders go for gold

  • Six riders will be flying the British flag at the World TREC Championships 2002 in El Rocio, Spain, this month

    Six riders will be travelling to El Rocio in Spain to represent Britain in the 2002 World TREC Championships on 13-15 September.

    The team will be:

    • Anthea Kendrick from Cumbria
    • Caroline Brammer from Shropshire
    • David Hay-Thorburn from Argyll
    • Deborah Swan from Hampshire
    • Faye Hamilton from Lanark
    • Ros Evans from Ayrshire

    The team, which includes experienced campaigners such as David Hay-Thorburn, individual world champion in 2000, plus a number of promising newcomers, are hoping to improve on last year’s silver medal in Belgium.

    The British riders, who are being supported by country goods distributor Ashby House, will be competing on horses borrowed from the BHS Approved Exam Centre at Epona near Seville.

    “Although the riders will not be riding their own horses, Epona have provided some excellent horses that are fully acclimatised to the conditions,” says British chef d’equipe, Rob Jones. “The team certainly has the proven ability to win a championship at the very top level.”

    “We are delighted to support the British team in this up-and-coming equestrian sport”, said Ben Partridge of Ashby House. “We wish them every success.”
