Equestrian FEI Dressage Group C Olympic Games Qualifier 2019


Recommended Posts

According to FEI entries (which are sometimes incomplete), only Belarus and Russia will compete + an individual from Latvia. Kind of meh, I expected to see Poland and Estonia as well, though it's possible they felt like Russia was unbeatable anyway. Actually, only Belarus could possibly challenge the Russians, and even that is rather unlikely.

 

Russia though very much deserves to finally qualify a dressage team. They never had a team after the Soviet times during which they were rather successful. Hell, they even defeated West Germany for the team gold at the Munich Olympics.

That's a shame, but yeah Russia are going to be the heavy favourites. It's also less likely for a team to be eliminated in dressage than eventing/jumping so I guess other nations didn't want to waste money traveling there.

When did you see the Polish dressage team last time?

Nice to see Belarus trying to make this interesting, but I imagine it's downhill for them as they just used their best rider. At this point, they need a complete disaster from Russia's final two riders to have a chance...
