Today at the Grand Parquet in Fontainebleau, France, equestrian sports fans took in the conclusion of the 2018 Longines FEI European Jumping Championships for children presented by GPA. And at the end of the two rounds held over the past two days, Germany took the gold ahead of silver medallists Ireland and third-placed Belgium.

Stringing together faultless rides and finishing with just four faults overall, the German riders – Charlotte Höing, Mikka Roth, Mick Haunhorts and Chiara Reyer – kept the leader status they had gained in the first part of the championship.

"I'm so proud of my teammates today! I had a lot of pressure during my ride because I knew we could drop in the standings if I made a mistake,” said Chiara Reyer as she left the arena. “I’m so happy! My horse fought so hard for me... There are no words to describe my happiness!"

The individual medals in the children's category will be decided on Saturday.
