  • William Fox-Pitt (45) will compete with Christopher Stone’s Chilli Morning, 14-year-old Brandenburg-Anhalt stallion (Koralle—Kolibre).
  • Pippa Funnell (45) will ride Billy Beware, a 10-year-old British bred gelding (Kannan—Dollar Day, Cavalier) owned by Jonathan and Jane Clark.

Update July 28: Pippa Funnell was forced to withdraw Billy Beware due to injury. A fifth and sixth member of the squad will be announced shortly. 

“As always it’s a very exciting time once the squad has been selected for a Championships,” commented Britain’s Eventing Chef d’Equipe Yogi Breisner. “The main aim this year is Olympic qualification, whilst being as competitive as possible. I think we have the right squad to achieve that.”
