A horse rider from St Martins has been selected to ride for England at the Royal Welsh Show later this year.

Greg James and his horse, Jack, compete in mounted games - a fast-paced competition where riders and their ponies have to complete relay races.

The pair have also been named reserve for the European team when they compete in both the team in France, while he will compete in the individual competition on his other pony, Whisper.

He said: "The Royal Welsh is widely regarded in mounted games as the most fun show because of the big crowd and large arena.

"It is even more of an honour to be part of the European team as I have the chance to win my fifth European title."
