Just before the European Championship the Dutch dressage team has bad luck. First it became known that Hans Peter Minderhoud had to withdraw due to an injury of Glock’s Johnson TN, now his successor also has to withdraw. Emmelie Scholtens and Apache were supposed to replace Minderhoud and Johnson, but Scholtens noticed during training at home that her horse does not walk clearly. The injury is not severe, but Apache will now get a break for some weeks. Chef d’Équipe Rien van der Schaft has now nominated Patrick van der Meer and Zippo to replace the replacement.
