Germany’s Ingrid Klimke has withdrawn her partner Franziskus FRH from the FEI Dressage World Cup Final freestyle that takes place tomorrow, April 7, in Omaha, Nebraska. She reported that the Hanoverian stallion (Fidertanz 2—Antara, Alabaster 29) took a misstep.

“I am sad that we cannot compete in the freestyle tomorrow,” said Klimke. “The welfare of Franziskus is a priority to me. Considering the coming outdoor season, we have withdrawn him from the freestyle.”

The pair, who helped Germany earn a team bronze medal at the Blue Hors FEI Dressage World Championship (Denmark) last summer, finished fourth in yesterday’s Grand Prix.
