British Eventing release

The British eventing team who will represent GB for the home leg of the FEI Nations Cup series hosted at Houghton Hall International, 26th – 29th May 2016 has been announced.

The team is as follows:

  • Sarah Bullimore (43) with Mr Christopher Gilles and her own Valentino V
  • Laura Collett (26) riding Mr Bass, owned by Mrs Lyn How, Mrs Louise Scott, Mr Nick How, Mr Keith Scott and Laura
  • Coral Keen (28) and Total Equestrian Construction’s Wellshead Fare Opposition

The team head to the third competition in the nine event series off the back of a fantastic performance last month in Ireland. GB lifted the trophy at the Ballindenisk Nations Cup, the third year in a row that the British team have secured first place at the Irish event, and collected the maximum 100 points which leaves them in third place heading in to round three this weekend.
