Samantha Lissington and Ricker Ridge Sooty GNZ have stepped up to become New Zealand’s number one reserve for the FEI World Eventing Championships after the withdrawal of Tokyo Olympian Jesse Campbell and Diachello.

“It’s been a challenging spring for Diachello and I think this is the right thing to do for my horse,” said Jesse. “I can’t wait to watch the guys do their thing in Pratoni. I know they will do New Zealand proud.”
