Alan Oliver, the 34-year-old “for­got­ten man” of show jump­ing, is to re­turn to a Bri­tish over­seas in­ter­na­tional team af­ter 10 years in the wilder­ness. He has been se­lected as the third man in the men’s Euro­pean cham­pi­onship team to jump at Rot­ter­dam. He will also go to Dublin with the Bri­tish team in early Au­gust. Apart from a sin­gle ap­pear­ance at Wem­b­ley, Oliver has been ab­sent from the Bri­tish team since the re­tire­ment of his fa­mous Red Ad­mi­ral and Gal­way Bay.
