Colombian 4* dressage judge and FEI Tribunal member Cesar Torrente has resigned as chef d'equipe for Ecuador and Colombia.

"I will not take any similar positions in the future in order to commit myself to my judging career as a priority," Torrente stated. 

Cesar Torrente led the Ecuadorian Team to an unprecedented first gold medal in the 2017 Bolivarian Games. Through the history of these Games, Ecuador was always third or fourth depending on the participating countries.

Torrente had already notified the Ecuadorian Federation in July that he did not want to continue as chef d’equipe. In June Torrente already resigned as Colombian chef d'equipe.

This year, Ecuador had to cancel its participation in the Pan Am qualifying CDI in Buenos Aires, Argentina, next week, due to problems with the traveling and quarantine of the horses.

"I want to inform that I will not take any other position as chef d’equipe in the future, because I want to remain totally independent and commit myself to my judging career that is my priority now," he said.

Torrente will stay in Wellington Florida, for the entire 2019 Dressage in Florida circuit.
