The Spanish dressage team will have to do without their top rider Beatriz Ferrer-Salat. The rider sustained an injury when she fell over one of her dogs and hit the edge of her bed with the ribs. First, so Ferrer-Salat said, she thought that nothing had happened, but the pain got worse and worse. When she went to see a physician he diagnosed her with a bruised rib or even a fractured rib. The rider has to take a break of three to five weeks. Instead of attending the EC the rider will now holiday in Ibiza. “I will watch the dressage live stream,” so she said. Cirstobal Belmonte will replace Ferrer-Salat.
