Longines FEI European Championships Gothenburg 2017

Team Gold for Para-Equestrian GBR on Michel’s last assignment before officially starting with the US Equestrian Federation as High-Performance Consultant. A new team with three athletes on their first international Championship debut, with star-pupils, triple gold medallists Julie Payne and Suzanna Hext [photo above from left]. A freestyle record-breaking 80% score for the lovely Danish Warmblood mare Athene Lindebjerg owned by Diane Redfern. Sophie Wells won two Gold (Team and Freestyle) and one Silver (Individual), while Erin Orford won Bronze in the Individual. A dream team!
