William Funnell: We’ve lost the winning mentality *H&H VIP*

  • Opinion

    Congratulations to Ireland winning European gold, what a great team effort. So often we hear our British riders saying we have no owners, but the Irish could have filled two teams in Gothenburg — every rider has made their own opportunities and have gone all over the world doing so. As a rider, you have to go out and sell yourself, knocking on every door. Just look at Irish eventer Jonty Evans — through social media he raised half a million pounds to keep his horse.
