US Equestrian has announced the U.S. Dressage Team for the FEI Dressage Nations Cup at the 2019 CDIO Geesteren on 22 - 23 June 2019 in the Netherlands.

Debbie McDonald will serve as Chef d’Equipe for the U.S. team.

Geesteren is this year's replacement for the annual CDIO Rotterdam, which is not hosting its 4* event as the venue is preparing to stage the 2019 European Dressage Championships in August.

The following combinations are representing the U.S.A. for the FEI Dressage Nations Cup:

  • Shelly Francis (Loxahatchee, Fla.) and Danilo, Patricia Stempel’s 15-year-old Hanoverian gelding
  • Ashley Holzer (Wellington, Fla.) and Havanna 145, Diane Fellows’s 12-year-old Hanoverian mare
  • Charlotte Jorst (Reno, Nev.) and Kastel’s Nintendo, Kastel Denmark’s 16-year-old Dutch Warmblood stallion
  • Nick Wagman (San Diego, Calif.) and Don John, Beverly Gepfer’s 11-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding
