High Performance Pony Show Jumping Team Manager Gary Marshall said
“I am very happy with the team that’s selected to travel to Denmark. These riders have been very consistent throughout our trials and at the shows in Europe. The depth of talented riders this year was incredible I could have had two teams but I can only take one, with that comes disappointment for some. I am really looking forward to the Europeans and feel we have a very good chance of bringing home some medals. I would like to thank all the athletes who took part in our selection program and also to their parents. We, the pony committee, are very aware of all the hard work and commitment that’s involved at this level.”
