BD abroad: first Team NAF riders head to France

The following riders have been selected to represent Great Britain at the Saumur CDIOY/J/P and CDIY/J/P at the legendary Cadre Noir, the French national riding school, April 26 - 30. There’s also a strong senior contingent competing alongside our youth squads.

It’s the first opportunity for 12 talented youngsters in three teams to compete under new team sponsor banner, Team NAF. The three nations cup teams in the Young Rider, Junior and Pony categories will proudly be sporting their NAF team kit and branding during the trip to France.

Chefs d’Equipe Caroline Bell (Pony) and Cara Hayward (Junior & YR) will accompany the squads.

The Horse Inspection takes place tomorrow and the nominated order for the teams will be announced then.
Good luck everyone – follow the teams’ progress on social media with #TeamNAF.
