From the long list six combinations will be selected to compete for Great Britain as part of the NAF Young Rider squad in France later this year, but please note that this is a living list and horses and riders may be added or removed in the build up to squad selection later this year.

The British Young Rider squad are kindly sponsored by NAF; NAF is one of the UK’s largest and most established manufacturers of equine supplements; their products are used and highly respected by many event riders which is reflected in them also being the trusted Official Suppliers to the British Equestrian Teams promoting Clean Sport as one of their key company values.

Through their sponsorship NAF are supporting the next generation of British team riders via the Young Rider Programme, which helps recognise combinations for the NAF Young Rider team heading for the European Championships, and those aiming for the NAF National Under 21 Championships – which took place at Houghton International on 24th – 27th May.
