GBR Team Briefing in Aachen

Team GBR Update - Josh Collins

Update for Team GBR . You will all have seen the post confirming the three members of the team that will be going to Aachen next week. The fourth member of the team should have been Josh Collins.Unfortunately due to the FEI now not accepting Josh's scores at WEG last year he has not qualified as he now does not have the necessary two CRI scores. We have tried extremely hard to reverse their decision, but have been unsuccessful We all are extremely disappointed as we know Josh is , and the team will greatly miss him.
