East Yorkshire equestrian's successful debut for GB Dressage Team

A young Huggate horsewoman is celebrating after her successful debut for GB at the International Dressage Competition in Le Mans recently. Despite only having competed at the top level PSG Young Riders dressage standard since May this year, 20 year old Laura Milner and her 17 year old gelding, Wild Storm (whose stable name is Bouncer) impressed GB selectors with their partnership and was invited to represent GB in the Young Riders event.

 

Laura competed in the Team Test on day one and finished eighth in the Individual Test on day two to earn a place in the final music test on the last day. Laura came sixth out of 11 in the music test and was the highest placed GB rider.

 

Talking about representing her country for the first time, Laura said: "I have dreamt about representing my country since I started competing on the dressage circuit aged 11 and I'm so proud that we did so well at our first attempt."
