As per the squad selection policy for dressage, in order to be considered for the elite squad, combinations should be achieving consistent average scores of 67% or above with an increasing trend at Grand Prix level at CDI3* & above, CDI-W’s and CDIO’s either in Australia or overseas.
Burgess and the 16-year old Rhinelander gelding have posted good results at recent outings scoring 68.10% at the Vidauban Grand Prix and 70.123% at the Roosendaal Grand Prix.
