BAGINTON-based sisters Sienna and Elysée Williams-Ward won gold and silver respectively representing England at the International Mounted Games Association (IMGA) European Team Championships.

Sienna, aged 14, and her pony Izzy, won the under-15 team championship alongside Codie Beachus, Heidi White, Daizy Sutton, Lauren Dawson and Taryn Barker.

England led for the majority of the competition before pulling clear of reserve champions France and Italy in third under the guidance of trainer Will Robinson.

Elysée, aged 20, on her pony Layla, competed in the open age category and began the competition as a reserve before replacing another rider after a small injury to their pony.

And in just her second year of competing in the open age category, Elysée rode well with teammates Sadie Lock, Jack Capel, Will Robinson and Ben Connell.

However, after leading during the first part of the final, England eventually finished in the reserve champion spot behind winners France under the guidance of trainer Peter Walters.




The event took place at Onley Grounds Equestrian Complex in Rugby.
