FEI European Championships Bishop Burton 2018

The FEI European Pony Championships 2018 at Bishop Burton College in Yorkshire saw the hosts claim team gold while Sweden's Ingemar Hammarström topped the individual podium.

The battle for the jumping team title was a thriller, with the hosts claiming gold ahead of Sweden and a fierce fight between France and Ireland for the bronze. Clare Whitaker, wife of Olympic legend John Whitaker and mother of Louise and Robert who also compete at the very top end of the sport, was British Chef d’Equipe. “It meant a lot to win on home soil” she said.  

Angela Womens Boots Vita Ankle Laura 14 As other nations started to struggle during the second round the GB girls kept their cool. Shaunie Greig with Casino Royale and Claudia Moore riding Elando van de Roshoeve knew they had the gold medal in the bag after third rider Perdi Digby posted a clear with Kayleighs Star to leave them on eight faults. They had a nine-fault advantage over Sweden in silver but the French and Irish were tied on 20 faults so all four riders from each team had to jump off once more for the bronze. And it went right to the wire, with France shaving a few precious seconds off the time to clinch it.

Although the gold was won, fourth British team member Nicole Lockhead Anderson still rode her final round with Gangham Style - yet another clear - to keep her very much in the running for yesterday’s individual medals but it was Moore who came off best for the home side on the final day. The winner was undisputed as 15-year-old Ingemar Hammarström and his bay gelding Ocean des As were just too good for the rest when not touching a pole all week to take the title for Sweden.

With just four faults on the board Ireland’s Max Wachman and Cuffesgrange Cavalidam earned the silver but it took a two-way showdown with the French partnership of Romane Orhant and Quabar des Monceaux before Moore claimed the bronze with the quickest time in a third-round jump-off.
