Spanish Horses Selected for 2022 World Young Horse Championships

Wed, 08/10/2022 - 12:10

The Spanish Equestrian Federation, ANCADES (the breed society for CDE Spanish Sport Horses), and ANCCE (the association for the PRE horse), have made their selection of combinations that will represent Spain at the 2022 World Young Horse Championships in Ermelo on 7 - 11 September 2022. 

Spanish young horse team trainer and advisors Jose Daniel Martin Dockx and Jurgen Koschel headed the selection process.

ANCCE successfully lobbied with the WBFSH to get three instead of two slots for PRE horses at the World Championships, but then this year the selectors decided not to fill all those slots. So Spain now can send five horses per age category of which three can be filled by PRE's and if not, they will go to CDE bred horses. If there is no CDE option, only then as final choice it can be a horse of a different breed society.
