“It’s very exciting to be working with a team of riders that have such a wealth of experience between them, and I know that they will use that experience to best effect,” said British Dressage Performance Manager Caroline Griffith. “We have seen some great scores this year from those on the short list, which, for me, underlines the strength of the four athletes and horses that will be travelling to Tryon.

“If anyone can prepare this high caliber group of young horses for a World Equestrian Games, we know Carl, Charlotte and Emile can,” she continued. “Add to that Spencer, and we have capacity for some truly exciting team scores and a great competition.”
