The Danish equestrian federation has announced the long list of Grand Prix riders which are in the running for team selection for the 2022 World Championships Dressage on home turf in Herning on 6 - 11 August 2022.

Wolfram Wittig, Denmark's "consistent expert coach" and Technical Advisor, and Anne-Mette Binder, Danish Elite Sport Chef, drafted the following  long list of riders after the 2022 Danish Championships which were won by Cathrine Dufour. 

The long list does not include any horse names, even though several riders have multiple horses up for consideration. (Eurodressage added the names of the rider's top horses).

The final Danish team selection trial will be at the CDIO Aachen where they go head-to-head. While Dufour is certain of a spot as the top scoring rider in the country, the other three places are highly competitive as Kruth, Dufour, Bachmann, and Merrald have all been scoring internationally in the 75 - 77% range. 

They are:

  • Anna Kasprzak - Addict de Massa / Rock Star
  • Andreas Helgstrand - Jovian and Queenparks Wendy
  • Carina Cassøe Krüth - Heiline's Danciera
  • Cathrine  Dufour  - Bohemian / Vamos Amigos
  • Charlotte Heering - Bufranco
  • Daniel Bachmann Andersen  - Marshall Bell
  • Lone Bang Larsen - Thranegaardens Rostov
  • Nanna Skodborg Merrald - Atterupgaards Orthilia / Blue Hors Zack
