    Silver for FRH Corrida and
    FRH Butt‘s Avondale
    In Avenches, Germany’s riders became the vice European champions behind the strong
    British team. Two FRH-horses were members of the German team: the proven FRH
    Corrida with Andreas Dibowski, which had been the reserve pair in Tokyo, and FRH
    Butt‘s Avondale with Anna Siemer in her championship debut for black-red-gold.
