The British and Dutch equestrian federations have made their selection of riders to represent their country in the Nations Cup at the 2019 CDIO Aachen on 17 - 21 July 2019.
Dutch team trainer Alex van Silfhout made his pick after the 2019 CDI0 Geesteren although in a few days a change his been made to his original selection. Anne Meulendijks was initially selected on the CDIO team, but she has now moved to the CDI 4* division so the horse gets to do one test less.
Riding for Holland in Aachen are
- Diederik van Silfhout - Expression
- Adelinde Cornelissen - Zephyr
- Marlies van Baalen - Ben Johnson
The British equestrian federation will also have a team in Aachen with Charlotte Dujardin on Sonnar Murray-Brown's Erlentanz as anchor. Dujardin is sparing her top ride, MSJ Freestyle, avoiding a confrontation with Germany's top horses in the lead-up to the 2019 European Dressage Championships.
Great Britain will be represented by
- Charlotte Dujardin - Erlentanz
- Louise Bell - Into the Blue
- Charlotte Fry - Dark Legend
- Susan Pape - Don Nobless
Fry will also compete her 2018 World Young Horse Champion Glamourdale (by Lord Leatherdale x Negro) in the small tour, in which Dujardin is scheduled to ride Sarah Tyler-Evans’ River Rise Nisa (by Negro)
