European 2015 GBR Eventing substitution

27th Aug 2015

Unfortunately Waltham Fiddlers Find ridden by Tom Jackson and owned by Ian and Sara Jackson and athlete, has met with a slight setback that will prevent him from competing at the upcoming Longines FEI European Championships at Blair Castle (10-13 September 2015).

The Eventing Senior Selectors have called up the next named reserve, Wills Oakden (25, from Fife, Scotland) and Greystone Midnight Melody (a British Bred 12 year old bay mare, also known as Molly), owned by Mr David Kenwright and Sylvia Douglas.

Eventing Performance Manager, Yogi Breisner commented; “As always we have ups and downs in the sport. It’s very sad that Tom’s horse has been found not fit enough to be going. He is a young and very talented rider with a horse we’re very excited about for the future which is another reason we didn’t want to take any unnecessary risks.”
