The Dutch equestrian federation has announced the teams that will represent The Netherlands at the FEI Nations Cup legs at the 2023 CDIO Rotterdam in The Netherlands and CDIO Aachen in Germany.
Team trainer Alex van Silfhout announced the teams following the Dutch Championships in Ermelo last weekend.
"The Nationals were an ideal observation trial to see where the level is at," Van Silfhout commented. "In agreement with the riders I made my selection to get the best possible teams for Rotterdam and Aachen. We want to compete at both shows with the best team possible. We want to show ourselves at competition where the most happens. At those shows you get a realistic image of where the team stands and what we need to work on."
After Aachen, there is a team selection show in Kronenberg at the end of July after which Van Silfhout will announce the Dutch team for the 2023 European Championships in Riesenbeck (4 - 10 September 2023). the
