H&C caught up with Gemma Tattersall who spoke about how she is getting ready for the season ahead – and revealed what horse Rhi will be riding when she stands in for Jenny in Rudall Rides With

Rio celebration

Gemma was one of many Olympic and Paralympic riders to attend a reception, hosted by the Duchess of Cornwall to celebrate the success of Rio 2016.

Camilla welcomed the riders, horse owners and members of the core support team to her home at Clarence House in London.

With seventy guests in attendance, the evening was a fantastic opportunity to thank everyone for their hard work and dedication, which saw Team GB bring home an incredible fourteen medals, including nine golds.

Fingers crossed for Tokyo

The Duchess of Cornwall congratulated all the athletes present and joked that it was a shame the horses couldn’t have made it.

“I just wanted to congratulate all of you, the riders, owners, grooms and trainers, and of course the horses. I wish that we could have got them here tonight,” she said. “Let’s all keep our fingers crossed for Tokyo, and I hope we’ll be seeing you all in four years’ time with a lot of medals around your neck. Congratulations again.”
