The dressage selection committee of the Swiss Equestrian Federation has named the dressage squads for 2019. 

For the Swiss elite Grand Prix riders the 2019 European Dressage Championships in Rotterdam are the year highlight, where a team selection for the 2020 Olympics can be earned. 

Unfortunately no Under 25 Grand Prix riders presented itself for nomination on the U25 squad of 2019.

Another big absentee from the Swiss youth riders' squad is Léonie Guerra, a long-time Swiss junior riders' team member. The grand daughter of Swiss Olympian Otto Hofer has declared for Liechtenstein and will no longer ride under the Swiss flag. As of 2019 Guerra will be a young rider as she has passed the junior age limit.
