Replaces Fosbury For European Dressage Championships
Irish international dressage rider Anna Merveldt-Steffens has withdrawn
her top horse Fosbury from the the Irish team due to compete at
the European Dressage Championships in Hickstead next week (Thursday
14th August to Sunday 17th August 2003).
With the 16 year old westphalian gelding suffering from an allergy
Merveldt-Steffens will now compete in Hickstead with the 10 year
old Hera III. This promising mare had a good result at the Fritzens
CDI*** in Austria last month when placing 7th in the Grand Prix
Speciale in her first outing at this level.
