Equestrian FEI World Games 2018

:GER Isabell Werth apparently wants Bella Rose to be her WEG horse (the one that was sidelined through injury between November 2014 and July 2018). Right now they are improving with each show.

 

But it will be up to the German selectors to choose Werth's mount...

I won't be surprised if we won't send anybody. This year the federation created such hard (and according to athletes controversial) conditions to be in wide national team, that there is very few athletes.

Pawel Spisak already travelled to Kentucky for 4* this season. I'd be shocked if he doesn't go accross the pond again.

A lot of teams have been announced in the last 48 hours or so, but hopefully FEI will publish the nominated entries soon so that I can post them all at once.

Yeah, looks like no team following withdrawal of Pia Laus-Schneider due to a riding accident. Also Valentina Truppa and Co. apparently continue their boycott of national team...

 

At least having two individuals is better than having nothing like at Europeans last year. Progress. :)

I think that Valentina Truppa is disqualified by our federation... not sure about that.

It's the other way around actually. Enzo (Valentina's father) doesn't let Valentina and any other rider in their team to compete for Italy at championships...

 

Italian federation got angry at Enzo for selling Eremo del Castegno (Valentina's top horse) right before Rio, even though the federation was paying them to keep the horse until Rio 2016. Enzo however claimed that they didn't break the deal because they still qualified for Rio on Eremo (and eventually competed with experienced Chablis)...

 

Italian federation in fact sued Enzo, but apparently in the end the lawsuit was dropped and settlement outside court was made.
