The first French team selection trial for the 2019 World Championships for Young Dressage Horses is scheduled for the national show in Jardy on 30 - 31 May 2019 and the entry list for the horses vying for a team spot has been announced.

France is elegible to send two horses per age category to the World Championships in Ermelo. The "Societé Hippique Française" is in charge of picking the 5 and 6-year olds, while the French Federation will be in charge of the selection of 7-year olds.  

The selectors will give preference to horses registered with the Selle Français studbook. Horses have to score a minimum of 77% in the preliminary test to be considered. In case no Selle Francais horses score these marks, the spots will be filled by horses of other breed societies.
