Carl Hester riding Uthopia - Extended trot

Carl Hester riding Uthopia

I am sure that you remember the Olympic team and individual medals won by the GBR team of Charlotte Dujardin (Valegro), Laura Tomlinson nee Bechtolsheimer (Mistral Hojris) and Carl Hester (Uthopia). Well the good news is that they have all been selected again for the European Championships and all with their Olympic horses. Charlotte has been successfully competing on Uthopia but Carl will be reunited with Uthopia for the European Championships.

They will be joined by Michael Eilberg and Half Moon Delphi who have been selected for their first senior Championship team appearance.

The reserves are interesting…

  • Laura Tomlinson and Michael Eilberg’s reserve is Gareth Hughes and DV Stenkjers Nadonna
  • Charlotte’s reserve horse is Uthopia
  • Carl’s reserve horses are Fine Time 13 and Dances with Wolves

The following competitors have also been entered at this nominated entries stage:

  • Hannah Biggs and Weltzin
  • Nikki Crisp and Pasoa
  • Michael Eilberg and Marakov
  • Daniel Watson and Fideramber

The European Championships will be held in Denmark from 21st to 25th August 2013. The event will include Dressage, Para Dressage and Show Jumping.
