Chef d’Equipe Staffan Lidbeck has nominated seven riders to the Swedish eventing team for the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games (France). A final decision will be made on August 14.

With the sale of Ludwig Svennerstål’s 2012 Olympic partner Shamwari 4 to Boyd Martin, Niklas Lindeback and Mister Pooh’s withdrawal due to injury, and London Olympics individual silver medalist Sara Algotsson Ostholt’s pregnancy, the Swedish squad will feature new talent at the World Games.

The nominated riders are as follows:

Viktoria Carlerbäck on Volt af Källstorp

Dag Albert on Tubber Rebel

Anna Hassö on Clover

Anna Hilton on Matrix W

Johan Lundin on Johnny Cash

Malin Petersen on Sofarsogood

Ludwig Svennerstål on Alexander or King Bob
