Updated: Individual Olympic Dressage Riders Named



Several countries have announced their individual dressage entries who will compete at the Tokyo Olympic Games. The dressage competition will take place July 22-28.

Heike Holstein will represent Ireland. Holstein helped Ireland earn its first Olympic dressage team spot at the 2019 European Championships. Since then, her 2019 teammates have dropped out of Olympic contention for various reasons. Ireland therefore gave up its team spot and instead will send Holstein as an individual competitor.

Martha Fernanda Del Valle Quirarte and Beduino Lam will be representing Mexico.

Virginia Yarur and Ronaldo will be representing Chile.

Chile earned an Olympic slot after two other countries’ top contenders—Bermuda’s Annabelle Collins and Venezuela’s Patricia Ferrando—failed to achieve a high enough confirmation result to cement an invitation to Tokyo.

Caroline Chew and Tribiani will represent Singapore.

Singapore earned an Olympic slot after two other countries backed out. According to Eurodressage, New Zealand gave up its slot when its two contenders’ seasons were cut short due to COVID-19. Malaysia was next in line for the slot, but the top Malaysian contender, Qabil Ambak, was unable to achieve his confirmation result in time, so the invitation went to Singapore.


Yvonne Losos de Muñiz and Aquamarijn will represent the Dominican Republic.

Estelle Wettstein will take West Side Story to Tokyo for Switzerland.

Tanya Seymour and Ramoneur will represent South Africa.

João Vitor Marcari Oliva and Escorial Horsecampline will represent Brazil.

Francesco Zaza and Wispering Romance will represent Italy.

This article will be updated as more countries announce their individual dressage competitors.
