Oxford Mail: Charlotte Agnew Charlotte Agnew

Five Oxfordshire riders have had their outstanding potential recognised by the British Equestrian Federation.

The quintet have been selected by the BEF for its world class development programme, which runs from 2013-15.

Charlotte Agnew, 25, from Southmoor, together with 17-year-olds Alice Sandberg, from Chipping Norton, and Talia Laghzaoui, from nearby Churchill, are among 12 eventing riders to be called up.

Tim Wilkes, 17, from Henley, is among 15 showjumpers to be selected, while Samantha Thurman-Baker, 19, also from Henley, is among a dozen dressage riders to be named.

Funded by UK Sport, the development programme works with riders to maximise their talent in a bid to deliver success on the international stage.
