Chef d’Equipe of Team GB’s winning eventing team, Jill Barker, declared the cross country course at the East Yorkshire College “one of the very best in the world”.

“The course was in superb condition, an absolute credit to the Bishop Burton team,” said Jill, speaking after her team’s double success - scooping both the team and individual gold medals.

“It is definitely the most beautiful course and the questions it kept asking means it must rank as one of the very best in the world. “

Bishop Burton’s Equine Director, Kim Knightley, said her personal highlight of the week’s competition was Saturday’s cross country phase of the eventing.

“So much hard work goes on behind the scenes, so when it all comes together on the day it’s very special,” she said. “Our course designer, ground staff - everybody - did a tremendous job.”
