BD abroad: FEI World Breeding Championships
- Written By:
Following the viewing trial hosted at Hartpury Festival of Dressage earlier this month, the Senior Selection Panel can now announce the horses selected to represent Great Britain at this year’s FEI WBFSH Dressage World Breeding Championships for Young Horses in Verden, 24 – 29 August 2021.
Chief Selector Judy Harvey commented; “Last year our World Breeding Championship contenders suffered the disappointment of the Championships being cancelled at the last minute due to Covid. Some of those contenders are still eligible this year, albeit in a new category, so hopefully their efforts will pay off. We certainly wish them all the best of luck. They have a lovely group of horses and it will be great to see how they shape up on the international stage.”
