Xanthe to ride for Team GB at FEI European Championships for Ponies
QM girl Xanthe de Wesselow is celebrating after being selected to represent Great Britain in the Charles Owen squad at the FEI European Championships for Ponies in Poland next month.
Xanthe has had a successful year in the saddle so far, securing many top 10 placings with her two rides, including a notable second place at Oasby Horse Trials on Golden Chance Remark. However, it is with ten year old bay roan mare, Baramona Lass, that she has secured a spot on the GB Team.
Xanthe will travel to Strzegom, Poland for the Championships which take place from 15 – 18 August. Impressively, she was longlisted for the GB Team with both of her rides whilst simultaneously studying for her GCSEs, the results of which she will receive the week after the Championships. We wish Xanthe the very best of luck!
