All combinations are required to maintain their current form to remain on the list ahead of the Championships. A total of 8 combinations will be submitted to the FEI on the 13 August 2018, as Great Britain’s nominated entries.

Dressage Performance Manager, Caroline Griffith comments; “I am absolutely thrilled and delighted for the group of athlete/horse combinations named to our short list for WEG. We have a great mix of exciting young horses with experienced riders and established combinations all of whom have performed well this year so I am very, very excited about the World Games."

All of those campaigning this year have pushed those on the short list hard for their places, a true sign of the strength, depth and quality we have in this country.”

The dressage team will be announced in the coming weeks. ??Equestrian Team GBR is supported by the UK Sport National Lottery funded World Class Programme; the British teams are very grateful to the support they receive from the British Equestrian Federation Fund and official partners Dodson and Horrell, Equi-Trek, FALPRO England, Musto, NAF and Point Two.
