The U.S. Equestrian Federation announced that Sabine Schut-Kery, of Thousand Oaks, California, and Alice Womble’s Sanceo, a 12-year-old Hanoverian stallion have withdrawn from consideration for the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games Dutta Corp. U.S. Dressage Team.
“It is with disappointment that I have chosen to withdraw from the selection process for the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games U.S. Dressage Team,” says Schut-Kery. “Sanceo sustained a minor injury and was cleared last Thursday to travel by the veterinarians, but because of the timing we are not properly prepared for the upcoming events in Europe. I want to make sure Sanceo gets the appropriate time to get back in top competition form. We have received incredible support from [USEF] and appreciate the understanding of this difficult decision. After such a great start at international Grand Prix, we are extremely excited about Sanceo’s future.”
