Para-Equestrian Dressage rider Simon Laurens from Birdlip in Gloucestershire has been given an award at the European Dressage and Jumping Championships.

"An award to recognise activities connected with international endeavour in relation to equestrian sport," is how the citation describes the medal.

Laurens has collected gold at European, world and Paralympic level since 2005.
