Piggy French has been a popular figure in British eventing since her Junior and Young Rider days when she was a member of the European team gold medal in 2001. She also claimed the individual silver at the 2009 Europeans riding Some Day Soon and a year later rode Jakata at the World Equestrian Games where the pair finished 14th. The partnership went on to finish 9th at the 2011 European where Piggy also won her first senior team medal taking the bronze. After a break to start a family Piggy is back on the British team competing at this year’s European Championships in Stzregom with Quarrycrest Echo, and a week later finishing second at the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials with Vanir Kamira.
