Kitty King and Izzy Taylor, both sponsored by Woof Wear, finished as the highest placed British riders and inside the top ten at the 2015 Longines FEI European Eventing Championships, which concluded at Blair Castle on Sunday 13 September.
With the British team down to just three riders Kitty King’s clear inside the time on Persimmon helped to secure the silver medal for Team GBR.
“I am over the moon with Persimmon’s performance at Blair, I couldn’t have asked for anymore from him throughout the weekend. He gave three strong performances and battled through the tough, wet conditions on cross country day. I couldn’t be more proud of him.”
Izzy Taylor and KBIS Briarlands Matilda were last to jump on Sunday, heading into the ring in the individual bronze medal position. However, one unlucky pole down meant the combination slipped down the leader board, but still finishing in a very respectable 6th position.
Ali Felton, Sales Director at Woof Wear, said: “Everyone at Woof Wear is over the moon for Kitty and Izzy for such great performances throughout a tough European Championships. They both truly represent what Woof Wear stands for. Izzy has only recently joined the Woof Wear team and we are excited about the future for her and her team. We have worked with Kitty for over 10 years, she works so hard and it is brilliant to see her dedication pay off on an International stage.”
