WARREN CLARKE has been chosen for the British team to take part in three shows on the North American circuit this year. Clarke's selection had seemed a foregone conclusion after the Horse of the Year Show at Wembley, where he won last Friday's puissance and was runner-up in Sunday's Grand Prix. On both occasions he rode the 11-year-old Benjumin II, with whom he was reserve for the European Championships. Good results on the American tour would enhance his claims for next year's World Equestrian Games.

BRITISH SHOW JUMPING TEAM FOR NORTH AMERICAN TOUR (Washington, 24-31 Oct): T Grubb, W Clarke, M Lanni and J Popely. (New York, 2-7 Nov and Toronto, 9-20 Nov): N Skelton, W Clarke, M Lanni and J Popely.
