Bubby takes Gold!
23 July 2017
Bubby Upton (Queen's 17) is Junior European Eventing Champion having claimed gold on Eros DHI, in Millstreet, Ireland on Sunday.
Bubby led from the start and incurring two time-faults, which she could afford. The pair finished 3.9 penalties clear of their nearest rivals.
“It hasn’t sunk in yet — I can’t believe it, I’m in a dream world,” smiled Bubby. “I was confident and he jumped clear when it really mattered,” she said, referring to the fact ‘Ero’ has had one pole down at his past four events in the UK.
Bubby prevented a German whitewash with three of their team riders claiming silver, bronze and fourth. They were Gesa Staas (St Stacy), Emma Brussau (Donnerstag 20) and Antonia Baumgart (Little Rose 9).
Imogen White (Nugent 17) and Bubby were also in Team GB and took home a silver medal so double celebrations all round!
Well done Girls!
