GB Eventing European Team horse substitution

William Fox-Pitt's ride, Lionheart, has been withdrawn from the British Eventing Team for the European Equestrian Championships at Malmö, Sweden (29 August – 1 September 2013).

He finished his final outing strongly at Hartpury International Horse Trials over the weekend, but subsequently was found to have bruised a sole. He is expected to be back in work soon and will then run at Pau.

 

William will now ride Chilli Morning, a thirteen year old chestnut stallion, owned by Chris and Lisa Stone at the European Championships.
