After Ingrid Klimke’s Franziskus (Fidertanz I x Alabaster) was injured earlier this season, a second dressage horse that had a chance of competing at the Olympics for Germany is now sidelined. It is Escolar (Estobar x Fürst Piccolo) ridden by Hubertus Schmidt. The much sought-after breeding stallion has suffered an injury. Because of this injury Escolar cannot participate in the second German observation round that will be held from 24 to 27 June in Kronberg. The combination is therefore no longer eligible for the Olympics in Tokyo.
