Rider to represent Team GBR Juniors in Nations Cup
Bryanston rider Francesca G has been selected to represent Team GBR Juniors (U18s) at the Nations Cup in Lamprechtshausen, Austria this weekend (18-21 May).
Francesca was selected after an impressive performance at Chepstow International with her horse Oak Grove's Lutece (aka Lettice), where she jumped her first 1m40 Grand Prix and came fifth overall out of 58 starters, the majority of whom were adults, and was the top-placed U18.
This weekend’s competition in Austria is one of three Nations Cups across the year, all of which are qualifiers for the European Championships. Francesca is hoping to qualify for this year’s European Championships in France both as an individual and as a member of the GBR Juniors Team.
Of her fantastic achievement, Francesca said, “I am absolutely over the moon to have been picked to jump at such a prestigious event. It is a dream come true!”
Congratulations, Francesca! We wish you the best of luck this weekend.
