August 25, 2009
British riders had another great day at the FEI European and Open Para Equestrian Championships, taking home three gold medals, while Germany took the last two.
The event, at the Epona Riding Centre in Kristiansand, Norway, wrapped up on Sunday, and featured Freestyle to music..
Making sure the right Brits, are in the right place, with the right horse at any time is performance manager for the British team, David Hunter. He explains the reasons for some of their success: "If you're going to be successful as a team you've got to be knit together. We are lucky in England to have a system. Through the national lottery we have a funding towards the paralypic sports," he said.
