Eighty-three horses were presented to the ground jury of Anne-Mette Binder (DEN), Jane Hamlin (USA), and Andrew Bennie (NZL), all of whom passed the first horse inspection and will proceed to the dressage phase of competition over the next two days.
Two horses were sent to the hold box: Imperial van de Holtakkers, ridden by Joris Vanspringel (BEL), and Rumor Has It N.O.P., ridden by Merel Blom (NED). Both were passed upon representation.
Team announcements will be flowing in over the next few hours, including the highly anticipated U.S. Team announcement. Ride times will also become available this evening.
