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.
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.
