Australian Eventing Team Chef d’Equipe Stuart Tinney said;

“Congratulations to the riders named on the list of 8 for this year’s FEI World Equestrian Games.”

“As the FEI have recently advised us that there may be some fairly significant changes to the length of the cross-country course this may have an impact on our selection tactics and so we are awaiting final notification before we select the five combinations to represent Australia at Tryon.”

“It is and will be a privilege to work alongside these riders and I look forward to a successful competition,” said Tinney.
