No Olympic dream for Dani Waldman

The saga continues: Dani Waldman made headlines earlier this week with a remarkable social media post about her disappointment at not being allowed to ride (as a reserve rider) in the individual qualifier. Today Waldman reports that she was selected for the team competition by chef d’Equipe Hans Horn and team trainer Jeroen Dubbeldam, but her horse Queensland E (by Quickfire de Ferann) is not fit. “Yesterday during our morning training, I already thought that ‘E’ was not quite fit. However, the team vet examined him and determined that he is indeed not fit to compete tomorrow. Therefore, in consultation with the entire team, he has now been withdrawn.”
