2006 World Equestrian Games

Spanish WEG silver medal winning mount Beauvalais will not be competing at the 2006 World Equestrian Games in Aachen, Germany, in two weeks. The Spanish Equestrian Federation announced the withdrawal of Beatriz Ferrer-Salat and Beauvalais

from the Spanish team due to an injury.

The 19-year old Hanoverian gelding by Bolero strained a muscle in the stable at the Jan Bemelmans' yard in Germany, where the Spanish team is preparing for the Games. Beauvalais needs one month rest to recover from this muscle injury and won't make it to Aachen.

Beauvalais' track record includes Olympic team silver and individual bronze at the 2004 Games in Athens, WEG individual silver and team bronze at the 2002 WEG in Jerez as team bronze at the 2005 European Dressage Championships in Hagen, Germany.
