GB Veterans Win European Championships Team Gold

The British Veteran Team, riding under the title sponsor banner of Team NAF, won Gold earlier this evening at the Veteran European Championships in Dagobertshausen in Germany.

The team consisting of Derek Morton from Stone, Staffordshire with KBS High Quality, a 7 year-old bay gelding owned by Zoe Snedker, Keith Stockdale from Wadebridge, Cornwall with his own 10 year-old grey gelding Grauffs Clear Round, Catherine Fowdrey from Polegate, East Sussex with her own 9 year-old bay mare Emalia and James Loffet from Cheltenham, Gloucestershire with the 14 year-old bay gelding Zandokan H owned by Edward Howard took the win over Italy and Germany who took Silver and Bronze respectively.

Carrying just 2.62 penalties forward from yesterday’s speed competition, the first round of today’s class saw GB finish on a zero penalty score with clears from Derek, Catherine and James with Keith being the dropscore following an elimination. The second round saw anchor rider James Loffett post another clear to finish on a zero penalty score across both rounds, one of only a few to achieve this, with the other riders all finishing on just 4 penalties each.

With Individual medals being decided on Sunday 1st July, the standings for those in contention look promising for Great Britain with three of the team riders within the top 10 after the Team competition had finished. James Loffett sits in 4th place on the leaderboard with Catherine Fowdrey in 6th and Derek Morton in 9th.
