The Danish equestrian federation has announced the long listed riders who are in the running for team selection for the 2023 European Dressage Championships in Riesenbeck on 4 - 11 September 2023.

Following the CDIO Aachen, where Denmark finished second in the Nations Cup, team captain Anne-Mette Binder and team trainer Wolfram Wittig drafted their long list. 

At a later date the list will be reduced to six riders, four team members and two reserves, that will all go into training camp at Blue Hors on 21 - 22 August where the final team will take shape. 

Long listed are: 

  • Andreas Helgstrand - Jovian & Queensparks Wendy
  • Anna Kasprzak - Addict de Massa
  • Carina Cassøe Krüth - Heiline’s Danciera
  • Daniel Bachmann Andersen -cVayron & Zippo
  • Lone Bang Zindorf - Thranegaardens Rostov
  • Nadja Aaboe Sloth - Favour Gersdorf
  • Nanna Merrald - Blue Hors Zepter, Blue Hors St. Schuffro & Blue Hors Don Olymbrio

Anna Zibrandtsen, who has been on a roll with Quel Filou, has not been long-listed as she will be celebrating her marriage to  Thomas Hansen on 9 September and is therefore not in the running for team selection.
