Taking place every two years at rotating venues around Europe, this Championship gives Europe's best CCI3*-S level riders the chance to compete in a unique eventing format in an International Championship. The British Team is generously sponsored by Premier Equine.
Potential squad members compete under the watchful eye of the CCI3*-S selectors, who use both National and International competitions to view prospective team members.
The Championship, formerly known as the Rural Riders European Championships and then the CIC2* European Championships, is run under a unique format which differs from other eventing Championships by having six members in the team that perform a team dressage test, commanded by the Chef d'Equipes. There is also an opportunity for the selection of two individual combinations to join the squad, making a total of eight places on the British squad.
Andrew Chadwick, Chairman of Selectors, commented “We are really pleased to announce this year’s team and are really looking forward to the competition. I would like to thank everyone who got involved this year including the selectors, the riders, the owners and Wellington Riding and Vale View Equestrian that kindly hosted our training.”
