GBR: Long riders put up a great show

Two Powys riders are celebrating impressive performances at a major international Endurance Festival. Llansantffraid rider Gail Andrews and Meiford?s Trica Hirst both produced great performances in Cirencester, the latter doing enough to book her place at the World Equestrian Games.

Competing in the National Championships, known as the Summer Solstice over a 100-mile testing course, Andrews finished third riding Vlacq Gilfae.

The race started at 4.30am and temperatures hit a very humid 28 degrees during the day.

Hirst, meanwhile, produced the goods in the FEI three star 100 mile race ride.

This was the final selection ride for the British senior team squad of five to go to Aachen in August for the World Equestrian Games.
