That's the same news I saw, which made me ask the original question. The silence is deafening!

Steffen announced months ago that they had decided to save Ravel for the Palm Beach Masters and WEG.
It is a huge distance to go - personally, I'm thinking it will be very good for WEG and dressage in the US that the first competition between Ravel and Totilas and Parzival will be here

People are either saving their horses for WEG, or focused on getting the scores they need/being noticed prior to the WEG selection trials. To be over there and ready by March 25, you would miss some big weekends in FL.

Thanks, makes sense. Although surely it's not really THAT far!
