Germany’s WEG dressage team boasts a formidable line-up of world class riders, including Olympic and World Equestrian Individual gold medallist Isabell Werth. The five-strong team will represent Germany on home ground in Aachen (20 August – 3 September).
German chef d’Equipe Holger Schmezer based his selection on the riders’ performances at several trials, culminating in the 2006 German Dressage Championships in Muntster last weekend.
Isabell Werth has been selected to ride either Warum Nicht FRH or Satchmo in the team. Werth will be joined by Nadine Capellmann (Elvis VA), Klaus Husenbeth (Piccolino) and Heike Kemmer (Bonaparte). Hurbertus Schmidt (Wansuela Suerte) is team reserve.
