Horse Sport Ireland Para Dressage High Performance Director Debora Pijpers (NED) said:

“I am excited to go to the World Championships with these four motivated combinations. It has been a good experience for all the riders to be able to compete internationally again. I can see that gaining experience in competing against the top of their fields improves and inspires the riders. It is also promising to see that on a broader range, new talented Irish Para Dressage combinations are showing their potential for the future. I’m grateful for the support of HSI and Sport Ireland and together we aim to keep building on a strong programme structure that will provide a solid basis for performances for now and in the future.”
