The 2012 bronze medal-winning Endurance GB young rider team will parade alongside Olympic medal winning equestrians as part of Team GBR at the London International Horse Show, Olympia, on Wednesday 19 December

The young rider team, Beth Langley, Carri Ann Dark, Kate Atkinson and Louise Rich, along with chef d’equipe, Helen Boston, claimed the bronze medal at the FEI Young Riders European Endurance Championships 2012, held in Mont le Soie, Belgium, in September. 

The British team took up the challenge with 58 riders from 19 countries, including nine teams, taking part over the challenging 120km course.  

Winning bronze was a significant result for the British young rider team as this was the first medal won by a British endurance team since 2000. 

Individuals Andrew Theodorou and Dace Sainsbury, who was the highest placed British Individuals in 12th place, will also attend the evening at Olympia.

The riders are delighted to be involved in the parade of medal winners at Olympia. 

Carri Ann said: "This is a fabulous opportunity and one I will always remember. Endurance is a fantastic sport and it is great to show other disciplines that we can win medals too".
