Peter Charles: Some of our results have been appalling *H&H VIP*


It was great to see Britain’s junior team win the Nations Cup in Wierden this week (see report, p60) — a result which was all the more impressive given that their funding has been axedby the British Equestrian Federation (BEF). It’s the only success a British showjumping team has had this season. Considering that we’re not even jumping in the top division for senior Nations Cups, some of our results have been appalling. The BEF’s World Class Programme has been in place long enough now that I believe this is the product of their system and something has to change.
