The BSPS Scottish Branch board is delighted with the results achieved by on Scottish WHP Teams at this year’s 2015 WHP International.

 

Scotland fielded two teams:

Blue Team

Pebbly Limited Edition & Alex Mundell

White Team
Pebbly Hornblower & Myles Lindsay-Brown
Colourville Viva Las Vegas & Ellie O'Donnell
Freckleton Maximus & Philippa Weir
Tinkas Flash & Hannah Sloan

Individual results were excellent across both teams. Scotland White excelled themselves finishing 2nd overall and Scotland Blue were 8th, which was an incredible achievement against strong competition.

Special congratulations must go to Philippa Weir riding Freckleton Maximus in claiming both the WHP & Dressage Championships from the 153cm section, as well as Hannah Sloan on winning the Intermediate dressage on Tinkas Flash.

A huge thank you must go to our chef d’equipe, Sarah Oakden for her time spent in training and motivating all the team members throughout the buildup and during the competition.

Thank you to all the riders, owners and supporters without you this would not be possible. You all rode fantastic!

BSPS, Sawtry did a great job in hosting a prestigious and enjoyable event for all those who took part.
