Our aim is to keep building on this and have gone for a balance of experience and development of new combinations with this team.


Mark Kyle with his Olympic horse Jemilla, had made himself available for selection, but unfortunately Mark suffered a fracture of his ankle on Cross Country at Chatsworth CIC3*. We wish him a speedy recovery."
