:USA endurance team. Deadline for the nominated entries in endurance expired yesterday so I guess we should know all of the entries soon.

:AUS Australia has named its dressage team

 

Mary Hanna (Boogie Woogie)

Alexis Hellyer (Bluefields Floreno)

Kristy Oatley (Du Soleil)

Brett Parberry (DP Weltmieser)

 

 

:NZL New Zealand has named its dressage individuals

 

Julie Brougham (Vom Feinsten)

John Thompson (Antonello)

 

 

So, since Japan is prequalified and New Zealand decided not send a team, Australia is basically guaranteed to get the Group G team spot for Tokyo.

It may happen that G group won't be filled if Australia gets one of the first 6 positions, unless there are other G group teams

National selection processes are now in full swing. :DEN Denmark announced their dressage team long list.

 

Cathrine Dufour (Atterupgaards Cassidy)

Daniel Bachmann Andersen (Blue Hors Zack or Blue Hors Zepter)

Anna Zibrandtsen (Arlando)

Rikke Svane (Finckenstein)

Anders Dahl (Selten HW)

Anna Kasprzak (Rock Star)

Victoria Vallentin (Ludwig der Sonnenkonig)

Bettina Jager (Belstaff)

 

As expected, for the first time since 2011 Europeans Kasprzak's Donnperignon won't be on the team. Also no Agnete Kirk Thinggaard this time.

 

Dufour and Bachmann Andersen (on Zepter) could both be scoring over 80% by the WEG, which is quite exciting for Danish chances. However, their 3rd counting rider may be their undoing medal-wise...

 

And it ended up with Cathrine Dufour (Atterupgaards Cassidy), Daniel Bachmann Andersen (Blue Hors Zack), Anders Dahl (Selten HW) and Betina Jæger Jensen (Mane Stream Belstaff)

Thanks for the update! :yes

 

Sadly, it looks like Zibrandtsen's withdrawal during Aachen was more serious than it looked. :( Without her, Danish medal chances are likely gone as Dahl is quite inconsistent while Jaeger & Belstaff very inexperienced (they literally have only two Grand Prix internationals on record, although with decent scores).

Don't know how serious it was with Zibrandtsen as she has been selected as first reserve with Rikke Svane as second.

Well, that's odd. Maybe elimination in Uggerhalne + withdrawal in Aachen played part. Otherwise I've got no idea how Dahl would be picked over her.

Patrizia Attinger (Hilton P)

Robin Goddel (Grandeur de Lully CH)

Ben Vogg (Noe des Vatys)

Felix Vogg (Colero)

 

Ben Vogg & Noe des Vatys' palmares keeps expanding! They are the only combination in history of the sport that competed at Junior/Young Rider championships as well as all three senior championships (ContCh, WEG, OG). :bowdown:

2010 European Junior Championships

2011, 2012, 2013 European Young Rider Championships

2014 World Equestrian Games

2015, 2017 European Championships

2016 Olympic Games

 

Also we have a shortlist for the :USA show jumping team.

I hope that Adrienne Sternlicht will be nominated (for obvious reasons). Just a shame that they all have to wear helmets, i think if FEI would allow them to ride without helmets, riding would win a lot of younger fans. Do you know whether she is related to Barry Sternlicht? If so, this would be another very interesting person in show jumping (after Georgina Bloomberg and Jessica Springsteen). By the way, her last name means something like "starlight" in german (Stern = star, Licht = light) ...

Looks like Sammi Birch and Hunter Valley will miss WEG due to small injury. :cry: Heartbroken, I really like that combination, great consistency.

That's it. I already hate this WEG.

 

Clarke Johnstone & Balmoral Sensation are the latest combination to drop out... Sammi Birch & Hunter Valley + Clarke Johnstone & Balmoral Sensation withdrawing is like literally picking my favorite combinations. Now only Selena O'Hanlon & Woody need to drop out to complete the perfect trifecta..

 

Spoiler

:cry:
