Substitution to European Dressage squad

20th Aug 2017

Weekend Fun, owned by Hof Kasselmann and ridden by Emile Faurie, has unfortunately incurred a slight injury which will prevent him from competing at this year’s dressage FEI European Championships in Gothenburg next week (21-26 August).

Emile’s direct reserve, Lollipop 126, owned by Elena Knyagincheva, has been called up and has already arrived at the championship venue in Sweden. The combination will compete alongside Carl Hester (Nip Tuck), Spencer Wilton (Super Nova II) and Gareth Hughes (Don Carissimo).

Performance Manager Caroline Griffith comments; “It’s disappointing for Emile, the owner and his team but we don’t believe that it’s anything serious and we expect them to be back out competing again very soon. Lollipop has already enjoyed some good results this season and will be a strong combination for the team. We are all very excited to get out to the championships and are looking forward to competing later in the week. ”
