Olympic Dressage Selection Still to Take Place

Dressage Team Selection still to come

We have become aware of reports in various media, which give the impression that the Australian Dressage Team for the 2008 Olympic Games has already been selected after the completion of the second Olympic Nomination Event in Lingen, Germany. This is not the case. No selection has been made as yet.

The nomination and selection procedure is outlined below:

30 May Dressage Selection Meeting (Lingen).

10 June Eventing Selection Meeting (Melbourne). To be followed by teleconference following Luhmühlen CCI 4-Star

15 June Jumping Selection Meeting (Aach, Germany)

17 - 19 June AUS-based Eventing horses compulsory final vet checks (Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide)

24 & 25 June Compulsory vet checks for Jumping & Dressage Teams plus reserves at Gilbert Böckmann's (Lastrop, Germany).

27 June Compulsory final vet checks UK-based horses at Graham Potts Clinic

30 June Olympic Shadow Team notified of selection or non selection by phone by the respective Chairs of Selectors and High Performance Manager.

02 July Deadline for notification of intent to appeal against non-selection

03 July EFA nominates team to AOC

04 July Olympic Team announced by AOC.

Following the two nomination events at Wiesbaden and Lingen, Hayley Beresford and Relampago de Retiro have now been added to the National Elite Dressage Squad and, therefore, to the "Olympic Shadow Team". Congratulations to Hayley, her trainer Isabel Werth and owner Eduardo Fischer!
