The “Selection Policy 2018 World Equestrian Games Dressage” has been updated again, with the change being that combinations need to only compete at one (rather than two) of the Nominated Events. Falsterbo (Sweden, 12-15 July) - which was to be the final European Nominated Event - has been removed from the Nominated Events list.

The policy now reads, “The DSP will consider the results, of combinations which have expressed interest, from nominated shows in Australia, Europe and North America. Combinations will be required to compete at least one of these shows with the scores from the Grand Prix test to count.”

Taking this into account, the highest scores for qualified combinations at Nominated events are:

1. Shannan Goodwin and Aristede 70.5000% (Werribee, March)
2. Alexis Hellyer and Bluefields Floreno 70.478% (Boneo, June)
3. Brett Parbery and DP Weltmieser 70.435% (Boneo, June)
4. Judy Dierks and Diamond Star 69.348% (Boneo, June)
5. Kristy Oatley and Du Soleil 69.000% (Wiesbaden, May)
6. Mary Hanna and Boogie Woogie 67.043% (Aachen, May)

There are also Discretionary Considerations that can be taken into account when selecting the team. Horses must also pass a veterinary inspection prior to the team announcement, which will be on or before the 19 of July 2018.
