European Eventing Championships: Team GB's juniors take bronze medal - Chelsea Pearce finishes best of British in eighth place
Great Britain's junior eventing team took the bronze medal at the European Junior Eventing Championships at Italy's Military Equestrian Centre in Monteliberetti near Rome. That was the same position the British team took in the 2015 championships.
This year Germany won the competition, and the British team riders finished twelve point behind the French who took second place.
The British team had an eventful show jumping stage with two clear rounds, and two fences down and a handful of time penalties.
Jumping as an individual, Marlborough's Chelsea Pearce and her horse Albert VI finished with "a lovely clear" - moving her up from eleventh place after the cross country to take eighth place. This made her the best placed British rider in the competition.
Chelsea said it was the best round Albert had jumped all season.
The British Young Riders team finished in fifth place. They suffered from the withdrawal of one horse before the final trot-up and the retirement of another team member during the cross country.
