Great Britain to field four riders at USA 20MT CEI***

Four British riders will meet in Ridgecrest CA USA to represent Great Britain at the Twenty Mule Team AERC/FEI sanctioned endurance race February 3rd 2007 in Ridgecrest CA, USA. The course has been the site for several USA team selection endeavors in the past and is one of the demonstration rides for the US team. Stiff competition is expected over scenic desert terrain.

Three riders (Pauline Beech, Emily Matthews and Dom Freeman) will represent GB in the FEI*** 160 km event. EGB member Suzanne Malden will participate in the 104 Km (65 mile) event.

Riders and team vet Paulo Fasano will be arriving from afar – Pauline will be traveling from the UK to be paired up with Dom Freeman’s seasoned 100 mile horse ‘Paris’.

Emily Matthews, who is flying in from Princeton New Jersey will be paired again with ‘Marquis de Fad’, and Dom Freeman will be traveling from California with the three horses and riding Proud Legacy+. Suzanne Malden will be arriving from San Diego with her mare Oleandra to make up the British Team.

Paulo Fasano has shepherded the UK off-continent team efforts as head vet since 1999 and will be making the trip from Sao Paulo, Brasil. The British contingent will be further complemented with FEI technical delegates Stevie Martin and Rosemary Attfield, and foreign veterinary delegate Dr Len Beech who will officiate at the FEI*** 160 and YR** classes.

The team is fortunate to have experienced sports photographer Daniel Murphy attending the event to photograph the British riders, vet and officials in action.

Ride details can be found on AERC Website
