The German Equestrian Federation has begun the team selection process for the German combinations that wish to compete at the 2017 World Championships for Young Dressage Horses in Ermelo (NED) on 3 - 6 August 2017. At the first training, observation and selection trial in Warendorf, Germany, selectors picked 33 pairs that are allowed to move forward to the second and final trial on 12 July 2017.
The first German selection trial was a two-day event at the DOKR headquarters in Warendorf, where the horses were trained in an open session and assessed by the selectors on Tuesday 20 June. On Wednesday 21 June they had to ride the young horse preliminary test. A field of 41 5-year olds, 19 6-year olds and 16 7-year olds travelled to Warendorf for those two days.
The selectors picked 33 pairs for the second trial on 12 July 2017.
