The dressage selection committee of the Swiss Equestrian Federation has announced the dressage squads across the levels for 2022. 

Top 10 at WEG 2022

Ruth Haas, the brand new Swiss dressage team captain who took up her post after the 2021 European Championships in Hagen, has marked the World Championships Dressage in Herning, Denmark, on 6 - 10 August as competitive highlight of the year 2022.

"The riders are highly motivated and are very well supported by our national team trainer (Oliver Oelrich), both in training sessions and at shows. At the World Championships we strive for a team place in the top 10," Haas commented. 

Smaller Squads

The squads of 2022 has diminished in size so that the team trainer can focus on more intense one-to-one training with the squad members. 

"The door is always open," said Oelrich who was hired as team trainer in December 2020. "With good performance a squad submission can happen mid season. We want to be transparent about it. We will also invite a type of "reserve combinations" to the trainings to view and support them. With small squads we can be more flexible."
