Essex’s Allana Clutterbuck helps British Showjumping’s Team LeMieux win FEI Pony European Championship Team Silver

The British Pony Team riding under the title sponsor banner of Team LeMieux did Great Britain proud when they won Team Silver earlier this evening at the FEI Pony European Championships in Kaposvar, Hungary.

 All British riders had put in a solid performance during the first round yesterday and their performances today further highlighted the depth of talent we have within the Pony environment.

 Allana Clutterbuck aged 16 from Upminster, Essex with Sultan Du Bary an 11-year-old bay gelding owned by Susan Evans came forward to the first round today with a clear penalty score so it was unfortunate to see them pick up 4 penalties mid course in the first round. With all to play for in the second round and knowing that a medal was at stake, Allana absolutely pulled it out the bag when she broke the finish line clear and within the time allowed to secure Great Britain a Silver medal podium position.

Ireland took Gold finishing just one jump ahead of Great Britain with their 4 penalties whilst the Netherlands, who sat two-time penalties behind us were relegated into Bronze.
