REIVERS Vaulting Group member Stacey Macpherson has been selected for the junior individual class at the European Championships.

The 16-year-old from Eccles has had a good season so far, notching a sixth place in Saumur, France, and sealing her selection with a win at the second selection trial at Oatridge.

She has been selected on Berwickshire RDA-owned horse Aspen Delikat, who she has competed on for the past year, and will be lunged by Rebecca Hewit.

Aspen, a 23-year-old Danish Warmblood, works in Berwickshire RDA weekly riding sessions as well as training with the vaulters.

This is the second year that Stacey has been selected individually and she is looking forward to putting on a good performance out in Slovakia in August.
