British Equestrian Vaulting
Lizzie Bennett travelled to Wales for the Talygarn EC BEV competition at the beginning of August. She was vaulting on a borrowed horse (whom she met for the first time that day) called Celt, owned by Eryri Vaulting Group.
Lizzie led the Para Canter/Walk class from the first round despite a disappointing compulsories score then extended the lead with a freestyle which scored 7.095. She finished on 6.304, comfortably ahead of the second-placed vaulter.
