"It is brilliant news that Welcome to Yorkshire has recognised what a great sport we have and Im really looking forward to being able to compete on my doorstep in front of a home crowd in this exciting new event. We desperately needed more international shows within our country and I couldnt be happier that a new one has been introduced within Yorkshire, a county that Im extremely passionate about.
