Drivers selected for Portugal

Carriage drivers selected to represent Great Britain at the Single Horse Driving Trials World Championships in Portugal from 12 to 16 September will be Emily Bennett, Ian Bertram, Ben Grose, Jock McFarlane and Pam Neill.

The team of three will be announced nearer the time with the other two drivers competing as individuals. Selection was made following the BHDTA Erddig National Trials, based on performance at Holker Hall (2011), Ashfields, Hopetoun, Sandringham and Erddig. The latter event replaced Catton Park following loss of the venue due to sodden ground.

Officials will be chef d’equipe Jill Holah, assistant chef d’equipe Patti Atkinson, Team Vet Rosie Mould, Team Equine Physiotherapist Hazel Potter and Team Trainer Boyd Exell.
