The Danish Equestrian Federation, Danish Warmblood Society and Danish Trakehner Society have hosted their first selection trial for the team nomination for the 2018 World Young Horse Championships in Ermelo, The Netherlands, on 2 - 5 August 2018.
Instead of working with a series of training and observation trials, this year Denmark worked with a competition format. Candidates for a team spot had to compete in the young horse classes at the 2018 Danish Dressage Championships in Broholm on 8 - 10 June 2018, where the selectors picked the best from the lot.
The youngsters had to perform the preliminary and finals test and were judged by Dennis Fisker, Gunilla Nyman Faurby and Birthe Lyder Nielsen.
Twenty-four horses in three age divisions have been selected and are invited to the final WCYH team selection trial to be held in Vilhemsborg on 26 June 2018, where they had to ride the Finals test once more.
