13-year-old Madison Heath from Nantwich continues to take the world of showjumping by storm, having been selected to represent Great Britain in the European championships in Fontainebleau, France. The competition takes place at Stade Equestre du Grand Parquet on the 8th-15th July 2018.
Madison is the one of the five riders that have been selected for the Children squad who are sponsored by Natural Animal Feeds (NAF). She will be competing with Burgana, a 12-year-old Bay mare, which is owned by Claire Beecroft.
The youngster is no stranger to the international competition arena, having been selected previously to represent her country in several times, most recently back in May this year.
The Children, Junior and Young Rider Nations Cups competitions all take place 8th-15th July. The Children’s team competition will be on Wednesday 11th July and then the Individual medal competition on Saturday 14th July 2018. The Chef d’Equipe’s accompanying the riders throughout the competition will be Tony Newbery and Clare Whitaker.
Madison has already earned an impressive list of accolades having recently taken the Leading Pony Showjumper of the Year Qualifier at Bicton Arena on Saturday 23rd June 2018.
Speaking about her selection Madison said: “I’ve always had ambitions for European Championships, so I am absolutely delighted to have been selected for the GB squad again. The next few weeks are going to be filled with training and preparation ready for the event, it’s so exciting.”
Whilst Madie benefits from the tremendous support of her family, Show Jumping is a notoriously expensive sport and competing at the highest level requires significant investment. Madie is therefore seeking the support of sponsors to help her achieve her ultimate ambition of competing at Olympic level.
