BRONZE for Team NAF ponies

After an agonising 24 hour wait, the Team NAF quartet of Anya Kolleth, Sophie Taylor, Megan Barratt and Holly Kerslake got the satisfaction of having thier bronze medals placed around their necks in a tough contest at the FEI Pony European Championships in Kaposvar, Hungary.  

The wait was down to thunderstorms yesterday which forced the day's action to be abandonded on safety grounds with just a handful of tests to be completed. The five riders completed and the end result was that Britain held their place in third to secure the bronze medal.

The Germans were in dominant form to take gold with a total of 220.103 with Denmark securing silver on 217.744 and Team NAF in bronze on 213.154.

Individually, the riders finished up:

6th Sophie Taylor/Madam's Miss Maria, 72.179%
9th Anya Kolleth/SL Lucci, 71.308%
13th Megan Barratt/Valido's Starlight, 69.667%
17th Holly Kerslake/Valhalla's Zorro 69%

The individual test gets underway in the morning with Megan Barratt and Valido's Starlight on at 06.54 (BST). The remaining three compete on Saturday - Holly Kerslake/Valhalla's Zorro 08.07, Sophie Taylor/Madam's Miss Maria 19.18 and Anya Kolleth/SL Lucci 10.45 - all BST.
