Lausanne (SUI), 24 January 2014 – The Reem Acra FEI World Cup Dressage returns with a bang after a five-week break. The series’ fifth qualifier takes place in Amsterdam (NED) this Saturday (25 January), and has attracted a sparkling field of 23 rider and horse combinations from 11 nations.
The spotlight will no doubt be on double Olympic champions Charlotte Dujardin (GBR) and Valegro, who only last month broke the Freestyle world record with their winning performance at the series fourth qualifier on home ground at London Olympia. The event will also feature Dutch favourite Edward Gal aboard the talented 13-year-old KWPN gelding Glock’s Undercover and two-time FEI World Cup Dressage champion Isabell Werth (GER) and Don Johnson FRH.
The eighth leg of the Longines FEI World Cup Jumping also takes place this Sunday (26 January) at the famous Mercedes-Benz CSI in Zurich (SUI), before heading on to Bordeaux (FRA) and Gothenburg (SWE) before the Final in Lyon (FRA) in April.
