The team of Austria has lost it’s top rider for the European Championships for U25. This thursday the EU CH will take place in Lamprechtshausen.
But Austria’s Diane Porsche will have to watch from the sidelines, since her horse Di Sandro (by De Niro) is not fit to compete. Porsche is currently second on the FEI rankings and was good for the bronze medal last year during the EU CH in Hagen.
To Dressage News she says: “We brought Di Sandro to the clinic for testing. I hope they find out soon what’s wrong with him. Altough i’m gutted that I can’t compete in Lamprechtshausen, the health of my horse will always come first”.
The European Championships will take place from august 31 till september 3th. The Nations Cup will take place on friday.
