A TALENTED Malvern St James Girls’ School pupil is celebrating a European championships call-up.
Sixth-form riding scholar Imogen Gloag, 18, has been selected for the Great Britain junior eventing team in Haras de Jardy, France, from September 12 until 15.
Fine displays at final team selection trials earned Gloag and her horse Brendonhill Doublet, from Oxfordshire, the place alongside five other combinations.
GB will defend team and individual gold titles as well as solo silver at the FEI Junior European Championships.
Chairman of junior selectors Ginnie Keen said: “Imogen and her ride are another pair of fresh new faces to add to the team, having had multiple top- 10 results this season, including fifth place at Houghton international in the three-day junior trial.”
Riding from the age of four, Gloag has twice represented the central region at Weston Park International Horse Trials in the Under 18s National Team Championship.
She said: “I am excited and honoured to have the opportunity to compete in the European championships.”
