EQUESTRIAN: Lionheart is withdrawn
3:09pm Friday 16th August 2013 in Sport
STURMINSTER Newton eventer William Fox-Pitt’s London 2012 horse Lionheart has been withdrawn from the European Championships in Malmo later this month.
Lionheart competed at last weekend’s Hartpury Horse Trials in Gloucester-shire, but the 13-year-old was subsequently found to have bruised a sole.
The British Equestrian Federation said on its website that the horse was expected to be back in work soon and is set to compete at the Pau four-star event in France during October.
Fox-Pitt will now ride his double Bramham Interna-tional three-star winner Chilli Morning in Sweden, where he will be joined by Great Britain team-mates Tina Cook, Pippa Funnell, Lucy Wiegersma, Izzy Tay-lor and Tom McEwen.
