The Swiss equestrian federation is the first to announce its team for the 2021 European Dressage Championships to be held at Hof Kasselmann in Hagen, Germany, on 6 - 12 September 2021. 

While Estelle Wettstein represented Switzerland as an individual at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, the other Swiss A-squad riders gathered one last time at the CDI Herzlake for a head-to-head competition before the announcement of the team.
