The Dutta Corp. U.S. Dressage Team Withdraws From Compiègne Nations Cup

May 27, 2021 - 11:10 AM

The Dutta Corp. U.S. Dressage Team has withdrawn from this weekend’s FEI Dressage Nations Cup Compiègne CDIO5* in alignment with guidance from the Fédération Equestre Intationale and the FEI Return to Competition EHV-1 exposure protocols. The competition is scheduled for May 27-May 30, 2021, at the Stade Equestre du Grand Parc in Compiègne, France.

The decision to withdraw the team and individual U.S. young rider combinations who have been stabled together was made prior to their departure for the competition venue and in consultation with the team veterinarian and FEI veterinary director.

In accordance with the FEI Return to Competition protocols, all U.S. horses were tested for EHV-1 prior to departure from their layover base to the competition venue. A limited number of PCR tests returned with adverse results.

Horses within the U.S. contingent have not shown any symptoms or clinical signs of the virus, are not febrile, and are all vaccinated. Out of an abundance of precaution, the team has decided to withdraw. The U.S. Equestrian Federation is working directly with the FEI to determine appropriate next steps and an acceptable timeline for a return to competition based on the outlined protocols.
