Bumper Boekelo

Following the recent cancellation of Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials, the CCI3* at Boekelo in the Netherlands, will host 110 horse and rider combinations from 18 nations over 9 – 12 October 2008. The last time Boekelo ran this many horses was in 2005, when Blenheim hosted the European Championships.

Twenty-four British combinations will compete, headed by Olympic Bronze Medallist and recent Burghley winner, William Fox-Pitt. William has two rides, the first is his 2008 Bramham winner, Navigator, and the second is Ingrid Klimke’s former ride, Seacookie.

Joining him is fellow Olympic team mate, Mary King with her two home bred mares, Kings Fancy, with whom she was second at Bramham earlier this year and the younger Kings Temptress, who was fifth at the World Young Horse Championships at Le Lion in 2007.

Making her Boekelo debut is newly crowned Young Rider European Champion and double Gold Medallist, Emily Llewellyn. She rides Society Spice, with whom she was fifth in the under twenty five championships at Bramham earlier in the year.
