The British Dressage selectors picked the following nominated entries list for the 2017 European Championships in Gothenburg on 22 - 26 August 2017. Only riders and horses listed on the Nominated Entries list can be put forward for team selection.

While all other countries are systematically announcing their teams for the 2017 European Championships in Gothenburg, British Dressage has opted not to make their decision public yet but instead went for a "short list".

The short listed British riders are still not sure whether they should be preparing their horse for peak performance at the end of August or giving their horses a break instead after a very busy spring selection season with observation trials in the U.K. as well as at the CDIO Rotterdam and Aachen, for instance. 

The short list for the British team includes:

  • Lara Butler with Dr Wilfried Bechtolsheimer’s Rubin Al Asad (by Rubin Royal x Wanderbursch II)
  • Michael Eilberg with Ferdi Eilberg’s Marakov (by Rufus)
  • Emile Faurie with Elena Knyagincheva’s Lollipop 126 (by Lord Sinclair x Welt Hit) and Hof Kasselmann’s Weekend Fun (by Welt Hit II x Rubenstein I)
  • Carl Hester with his own and Jane De La Mare’s Nip Tuck (by Don Ruto)
  • Gareth Hughes with Anne Keen’s Don Carissimo (by Don Crusador)
  • Hayley Watson-Greaves with her own Rubins Nite (by  Rubin Royal)
  • Spencer Wilton with Jen Goodman’s Super Nova II (by  De Niro x Weltmeyer)
