The short list of pony riders chosen to represent Britain at this year’s European Championships at Bishop Burton (29 July- 1 August) has been announced.

Those shortlisted will attend a training weekend on the 26 and 27 June after which the squad and reserves will be announced. The squad will then have a final run at Shipton Moyne, Glos, on the 6 and 7 July in the open novice, before heading to the European Championships.

Chairman of pony selectors, Ginnie Keen said: "We have many good combinations in contention this year which makes it difficult to select the squad straight after Brand Hall. The decision to select after the training weekend will allow us to have assessed all the ponies so we can ensure we have the strongest possible squad to take to Bishop Burton."

The short-list of riders are as follows:

Sophie Beaty (Done and Dusted VI)
Alfie Bradstock (Montezuma II)
Sam Ecroyd (Catherston Nutsafe)
Pumba Goess-Saurau (Killacoran Blue)
Phillipa Hill (A Touch of Spice)
Sophie How (The Sky Master)
Harry Humfrey (Tantany Torch)
Emily Jane Ryder (Mr Moon)
Grace Walker (Noble Springbok)
