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.
