British Dressage has announced the names of the long listed riders who will be in contention for team selection for the 2023 European Championships for pony, children, junior and young riders. 

While the new "squads" for 2023 have not yet been published, British Dressage has already announced the team candidates for the long list for summer European Championship team selection.  British Dressage U21 Selectors, Nikki Herbert, Richard Baldwin and Stephen Arnett, made their pick. 

This list indicates combinations from which the Team and/or Individuals and Reserves may be selected, but it does not preclude any that are not named but may still obtain scores that would be considered for selection.

Short lists will be announced by 17 April, with the actual teams and reserves announced during the week of 12 June.
