Australia’s Para-Dressage athletes aiming for Rio will venture to Roosendaal CPEDI3* in The Netherlands from May 20-22.

The competitions will be held at the well-known facilities PSC Den Goubergh and will be contested by three Australian athletes: Nikki Doogue, Katie Umback and Amelia White. 

This will be the final event where athletes can obtain scores to be eligible to compete and be in the mix for nomination for Rio.
