Last week, while approximately 8.2 million entrants kept our attention firmly on the CCI4*-S and CCI4*-L at Blenheim, there was another very important competition underway a few hundred miles away. That was the FEI Junior and Young Rider European Eventing Championships, hosted at Montelibretti, near Rome, and held at the CCI2*-L and CCI3*-L levels, respectively.
And boy, let me tell you, these kids can ride. There’s a whole lot of cross-country footage to dive into here, and inside, you’ll get the chance to glimpse the Olympic superstars of the future (including, no doubt, Isabelle Cook, daughter of Olympian Tina Cook, who was proud to have bred both rider and her horse!). 3-2-1 — let’s go for the ride of a lifetime!
