Travelling reserve is Maya Black with Doesn't Play Fair. What a cool name for a horse. :d

Bronze medalist from London (and 6 times Olympian) Andrew Nicholson will not go to Rio... As his conflict with New Zealand equestrian federation continues.

Looks like Canadian dressage selection is not over yet. Karen Pavicic managed to become a late entry for competition in Austria next week. With less than a week to go, she is flying today from British Columbia to Europe to try to improve her scores in the very last available competition... What an effort is that, transporting her horse to Europe in a rush. She is just 0.0485 point behind Lane, who is currently holding the second Canadian quota.

New Zealand equestrian teams will be named tomorrow, after that they will need to be confirmed by NZ Olympic Committee. Eventing team will definitely be approved by NZOC, but dressage individual's selection might be tricky. NZOC is looking for top 16 potential and Kiwi riders aren't exactly in that league.

 

If they don't accept it, then it will be the Phillippines that will get the dressage quota (they have Minimum Eligibility Standard so no worries there).

One of Polish equestrian websites wrote, that one of eventing Western European athletes (they didn't write who exactly) will be withdrawn by his NF from Olympics and Spisak will take his place. Can You somehow confirm it?

Sadly I can. I was looking forward to see the Swiss team, but looks like Melody Johner failed to get selected... Meaning that there will be no Swiss team, but only two individuals presumably...

This is about that situation, but I can't exactly get what happened. Does it say her horse refused to jump one obstacle and that resulted in her not being selected?

She had three refusals over cross-country in Strzegom, what resulted in elimination from that competition. That was her last chance to get selected. Swiss selectors apparently wanted to see a cross-country round with no refusals.
