Endurance GB has announced the team selected for the 2013 FEI World Endurance Championships for Young Riders and Juniors to be held at Tarbes, France (26 – 27 July).

The team is:

Kate Atkinson and Oakthwaite Samara

Brett Corcoran and Bashir Shamyr

Lauren Mills and Oakleaze Farm Czarko

Dace Sainsbury and Ballota

Andrew Theodorou and Jamal


Penny Amond and Rosies Brown Sugar

Chef d’equipe, Helen Boston says: "The championship course at Tarbes, France, will provide a testing course for the 120km race, due to its location being in the foothills of the Pyrenees. The temperatures at that time of year could also prove difficult as we are expecting them to reach 35 degrees. After working with the team for a number of years, and seeing how all of them turned out and performed at Wimpole yesterday, I am confident that they will prepare themselves and their horses so that once again Great Britain can prove that it is a force to be reckoned with on the Young Rider World Endurance stage, and I am very much looking forward to working with them and the rest of the team management".
