Swedish Chef d’équipe has confirmed ten riders for Falsterbo Horse Show’s CSIO 10-13 July.
“Every show before the World Equestrian Games is important but Falsterbo is naturally a step on the way” says Sylve.
Rolf-Göran Bengtsson, Henrik von Eckermann, Peder Fredricsson, Niklas Jonsson, Douglas Lindelöw and Alexander Zetterman are all potential team riders for the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ on Friday 11 July.
Three other riders to participate in the CSIO are Angelica Augustsson, Erika Lickhammer and Johan Lundh. The tenth rider was confirmed this weekend when Niklas Arvidsson won the Swedish Showjumping Championship.
Malin Baryard Johnsson and Jens Fredricsson are candidates for the World Equestrian Games but will not be competing in the top competitions. It is a bit early for their horses Tornesch and Lunatic who are both back in action after a break but not yet ready for the biggest jumps.
The last two Swedish riders will be confirmed after qualifications in Falstebro 5-6 July where twelve riders will have a chance to join the CSIO.
