History was made today when British quartet Nicola Wilson, Piggy March, Kitty King and Ros Canter secured the team gold medal in Avenches, adding to the World and Olympic titles already held.
It was a clean sweep on the individual podium, too, with Nicola and Piggy taking gold and silver, and compatriot Sarah Bullimore taking the bronze. It was the seventh time Britain has taken all four medals on offer in 35 editions of the FEI European Eventing Championships.
All six riders on the team received funding support through our "Let's Make a Difference" donation to British Equestrian, which of course was only possible thanks to our members continued support.
Final British individual placings
Gold - Nicola Wilson and JL Dublin, 20.7
Silver - Piggy March and Brookfield Inocent, 23.3
Bronze - Sarah Bullimore and Corouet, 23.6
9th - Kitty King and Vendredi Biats, 28.9
10th - Izzy Taylor and Monkeying Around, 31.9
46th - Ros Canter and Allstar, 77.0

We hope that you are all staying safe during this unprecedented and difficult time, and we send our best wishes to those of you who have been affected by the coronavirus.
We are all longing to get back out eventing, but at the moment we do not know what the rest of the season holds for us.
Following the sad cancellation of Badminton a few members have been in contact regarding potential refunds of 2020 subscriptions. The HTSG Committee will be considering the various options once a decision has been made regarding the running of Burghley Horse Trials, so we appreciate your patience in this matter. Please note that we have already accounted for VAT on the membership and paid over the donation element to World Class as previously advised.
We will be in touch with you all again in due course, and in the meantime please do take good care of yourselves and your loved ones.
If you can, take a look at the Virtual Eventing competition which is being run to raise funds for NHS Charities Together.
As ever we value the members support greatly, especially at this difficult time.
This event was cancelled due to Covid and we are waiting to hear if it will be rescheduled in 2022.
