Lyndal Oatley has swapped her selected horse Elvive for her direct reserve ride Eros to represent Australia at the 2022 World Championships Dressage in Herning, which kick off on Friday 6 August 2022.
The Australian Dressage Selection Panel, in consultation with Lyndal Oatley, has confirmed that Lyndal will ride the 13-year-old KPWN gelding Eros at the World Championships. Lyndal was originally named as part of the Australian dressage team on her 13-year-old KPWN mare Elvive.
"In accordance with clause 3.1 of the National Selection Policy, the National Selection Panel evaluated their position and determined that Lyndal Oatley will ride her second qualified horse, Eros, as part of the Australian Team," the Australian federation stated.
Oatley commented on social media, "Ross just feels in the form of his life of date."
