Emily Finishes Just Off The Podium in Poland

Emily Viller from Sutton St James near Spalding, Lincolnshire, finished just off the podium in fourth place at the FEI European Youth Championships, held in Walbrzych, Poland 21st to 24th August. She was competing as an individual in her first international championships.

Driving in the Junior section, 16 year old Emily had a dressage score of 59.27 for fifteenth place after the first phase. However, she made up considerable ground in the obstacles to finish third for an overnight place of eighth overall; a double clear in the cones saw her leap-frog up the leader board to finish a highly creditable fourth. Emily was overwhelmed by how well she and her pony Ryan had gone and could only say: “I’m really grateful for the opportunity to compete at such a special event. I’m lucky to have such an amazing pony!”
