The senior vaulters will compete alongside dressage, jumping, reining and driving athletes in Aachen, Germany, 20-23 August, at the FEI European Championships.
The team is headed up by Hannah Eccles and Lucy Phillips, who represented Great Britain at last year’s World Equestrian Games in France; whilst the other announced combinations all make their senior championship debut.
