The team has been announced for the CSIO5* Nations Cup competition to be held in Vancouver, Canada, at Thunderbird Show Park from 31st May – 5th June 2022.
Four combinations will represent Australia in the competition, including two partnerships that were part of the Nations Cup Team that placed 6th in Wellington, Florida, earlier this year.
Todd Hinde, EA High Performance Jumping Manager, said that the opportunity to field a team at the CSIO5* in Canada will allow riders to gain additional team experience as the FEI World Championships approach.
“This will be the first time in recent years that Australia has participated in a CSIO5* in Canada, and we are pleased to give our athletes this opportunity as they look ahead to future Championships. It will also provide the riders with exposure to an immersive team atmosphere which can only be experienced at a Nations Cup event.”
Congratulations to the combinations selected.
