Holland's star duo Hans Peter Minderhoud and Dream Boy will not be competing in the World Cup qualifier of London on 16 - 17 December 2019.
The combination has withdrawn their entry yesterday.
Last year the pair won the pilot project short Grand Prix test and placed second in the freestyle behind German duo Frederic Wandres and Duke of Britain.
"Unfortunately Dream Boy has a bit fever, so we won't take any risk and "Dreamy" will stay at home," it read on the Glock Facebook page.
Dream Boy is a KWPN licensed stallion by Vivaldi x Ferro and owned by Gaston Glock, Tim Coomans, Jacques Maree and Stable Brinkman.
The London based Slovenian rider Mojca Usnik will take over Dream Boy's vacant spot on the starters' list. Usnik rides Libertino (by Cornet Obolensky).
The 2019 CDI-W London, also known as the Olympia Horse Show, will be giving a new test platform to the Short Grand Prix test, version 2.0, on Monday 16 December 2019. Eurodressage will be on the scene for this test event.
