Today it became known that German eventing rider Bettina Hoy will not attend another Championship as a rider. Instead the 55-year-old wants to focus on her job as a coach. “For me it was always clear that I would go while I was still one of the top riders in the world,” so she said, after careful consideration. In 2017 Bettina Hoy won her fourth German Championship but also took over as coach of the Dutch eventing team. Now she wants to focus on this occupation, but she does not want to stop riding completely. She still wants to compete at selected three- and four-star events with Designer and her new horses.
