No European Championships for Valentina Truppa

After having suffered severe head injury and having been in an artificial coma for some time due to a fall at the CDN Arezzo, Valentina Truppa’s last medical check had a positive result, so disclosed. However, her doctors have instructed her to get back to riding horses only in September. Therefore the best Italian dressage rider has to forgo the European Championships in Aachen. At the end of August Truppa is supposed to have another medical check and if everything is alright she will be able to compete again in September. Her focus then will be the qualification for the Olympic Games in Rio. It is still not sure yet if Italy even can send a team to Aachen.
