The British teams for the FEI World Endurance Championships and the FEI European Endurance Championship for Young Riders & Juniors have been named.

The senior team will compete in the 160km race held in Samorin, Slovakia from 15-18 September.

The selected riders are Carri Ann Dark with HS Drift, Fiona Griffiths with Oliver Twist IV, Nicola Thorne with LR Bold Greyson or LM Bolena (travelling reserve horse) and Christopher Wray with Takwenya.

“They are all very experienced international riders, three of whom have already competed at a championship ride, so will cope well with the environment and hype of a world championship,” said Senior Team Chef D’Equipe, Liz Finney.

Meanwhile, the Young Rider team has been selected for the 120km FEI European Endurance Championship for Young Riders & Juniors to be held in Rio Frio, Portugal from 2-4 September.
