TOKYO: Harry Charles replaces Holly Smith on British show jumping team
on 02 August 2021
The 22-year-old will ride Romeo 88 in the first individual qualifier tomorrow

THE British show jumping team have made a change to their three riders ahead of tomorrow’s first individual round at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

Twenty-two-year-old Harry Charles and Romeo 88 replace Holly Smith with Denver. A statement from the British Equestrian Federation said: “Ahead of Tuesday’s Tokyo Olympic Equestrian Jumping individual event at the Equestrian Park at Bajikoen, Team GB has made a pre-competition change in accordance with the FEI Regulations for Equestrian Events at the Olympic Games (article 609) to bring in Harry Charles, riding his own and Ann Thompson’s Romeo 88, in place of Holly Smith and Denver, owned by Ian Dowie.”

The 12-year-old gelding Romeo 88, who is owned by Ann Thompson, was previously ridden by Ireland’s Darragh Kenny. Charles joins teammates Ben Maher (Explosion W) and Scott Brash (Hello Jefferson) on the team.
