The starting lists for the first Danish selection trial for the 2019 World Young Dressage Horse Championships are ready and give an overview of the team candidates vying for a spot. 

The Danish WCYH selection trials begin with a first meeting in Uggerhalne, Denmark, on 8 - 9 June 2019. 

On the first day the 5,5 and 7-year olds perform the preliminary test and on the second day they perform the finals test in front of the selectors from the Danish Equestrian Federation and Danish warmblood society. 

The best represented sire is Blue Hors Zack with eight offspring entered.

Interesting to note is the entry of Zhaplin Langholt, of which American owner Charlotte Jorst told Eurodressage in April that the horse would not compete for Ermelo as it would be "too much for him" after showing in the U.S. and traveling back to Europe. German Olympian Helen Langehanenberg will travel to Denmark to qualify her sponsor's Straight Horse Ascenzione (by Zack).

The Danish owned Westfalian stallion Revolution (by Rocky Lee x Rouletto), who was the winner of the 5-year old World Championships in 2018, needs to qualify through the German system.
