Dressage Canada has announced that Robert Dover has been rehired as an interim Technical Coach/Advisor until April 1, 2011, so that Dressage Canada has time to find his replacement.
“We have some very important goals ahead in 2011, and I intend to give 150 percent to ensuring successful outcomes in all of them,” wrote Dover on his website.
Dover and Dressage Canada were unable to reach an agreement towards a contract extension after Dover’s contract expired in October.
Canada reached its highest placing at a world championship under Dover’s tutelage, seventh at the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, as well as a bronze medal at the Nations Cup at CDIO***** Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
Dressage Canada is actively searching for a new Technical Leader so that athletes can receive the support they need leading up the Pan American Games this year as well as the 2012 London Olympic Games.
