Four-star Rider Pregnant

British four-star eventer Piggy French is pregnant. Yesterday she told Horse & Hound that she was very excited, even though it “wsa a big change of plan for a period of time”. The horses of the rider who won individual silver at the 2009 European Championships will be ridden by other riders for some time. “I’m grateful to all of them for their help in continuing the progress and training of my horses for the time I am not riding and I wish them every success,” French said. “I look forward to returning to competitive action as soon as possible.”
