Wilson Picks It . . . In Midnight’s Hour

Wales’ Georgia Wilson is celebrating after winning silver for Great Britain in her first senior championships at the European Para-dressage Championships in Rotterdam.

The 23-year-old from Wrexham, riding Midnight, finished second behind multi-Paralympian Pepo Puch from Austria, on Sailor’s Blue.

Wilson’s score of 73.47% secured Britain’s first medal of the championships before she paid tribute to her trainer Sophie Wells.

“It was completely nerve racking but I’m glad that first test is out of the way,” said Wilson.

“I had a dilemma whether or not to carry two whips, but Sophie told me to stick with the plan.

“Midnight is amazing and doesn’t spook, really. When she’s listens, she loves to flick her toes!”
