Five dressage riders have been submitted to the 2017 KNHS Talent Team, which was announced at the 2017 CDI-W 's Hertogenbosch in The Netherlands on Saturday 11 March 2017.
Annually the Dutch Equestrian Federation announces the KNHS Talent Team of young and upcoming riders who are close to make the transition to senior Grand Prix level. In 2016 the Team included four dressage riders and this year the group has been expanded to five.
The 2017 Talent team dressage riders are Anne Meulendijks, Jill Huybregts, Maxime van der Vlist, Denise Nekeman, and Jeanine Nieuwenhuis, with the latter two being new comers.
In the past the Talent Team was sponsored by Rabobank and therefore named Rabo Talent Team, but that sponsorship contract ended in 2016. Team members get financial aid for extra training and coaching to stimulate their top sport career.
