A Blow for Britain in Aachen

Released 31.08.06 Having had such a consistently successful summer season, it was disappointment not only for Robert Smith but for supporters of British show jumping when Marius Claudius emerged unsound after Monday’s warm-up session at WEG.

Reserve rider, Nick Skelton and Russel stood in his place.
