Team GB equestrian team scoop a silver

Posted on | 0 Responses

The Olympics has thrust eventing into the spotlight and given horse insurance customers plenty to talk about.

And London 2012 looks like it could leave a legacy as Team GB has won silver in the sport – surprising pundits and boosting the country's medal count at the same time.

Philips was riding High Kingdom, a horse she has worked with for many years. The duo managed a dazzling display.

Speaking about her beloved horse, the royal said: "He's done ever so well, and I'm really proud of how he went.

"It was better than I could have expected of him – considering the crowd, the turns and the hills – there was a lot to take on physically and mentally."

Germany, who were firm favourites, scooped the Team Eventing gold and Britain was put under pressure from a superb New Zealand team.

There are more equestrian events to come as the Olympics ratchets up, with arena jumping getting underway next week.
