The British Dressage Selectors in conjunction with Performance Manager Caroline Griffith have made a change to the team that will represent Great Britain this week in the FEI Dressage Nations Cup™ at Compiègne in France (19 – 22 May 2022). After sustaining a mild concussion following a minor non riding-related incident, Richard Davison has been forced to withdraw from the competition.

“I have a mild concussion so for the moment I mustn’t ride but I hope to be given the all clear, to ride and drive, after the weekend,” commented Richard. “I wish the team all the very best in France.”

This brings in team reserve Daniel Watson, with Barbara Marceau’s Butterfly IV, who will join Fiona Bigwood (Hawtins Delicato) and Charlotte Fry (Glamourdale) in the Nations Cup competition.
