The Royal Dutch Equestrian Federation (KNHS) has added a new combination to its Olympic framework for eventing following on from their performance at Pau CCI4*.
Alice Naber-Lozeman and the 12 year old gelding Coral Estate Harry Belafonte have been elected to the framework after their performance at event, where they finished 23rd, completing without any penalties during the cross country at their first CCI4* competition. The result meant they reached the requirements set for inclusion in the Olympic framework of national coach Martin Phillips.
The KHNS Olympic framework also consists of
- Merel Blom & Rumour Has It N.O.P.
- Andrew Heffernan & Boleybawn Ace NOP
- Tim Lips with Keyflow N.O.P & Bayro
- Elaine Pen & Vira N.O.P.
The team qualified for the 2016 Olympics in Rio by collecting the Bronze medal at the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in France. Four of the riders who are included in the Olympic framework were a part of the medal winning team – Elaine Pen, Tim Lips, Merel Blom and Andrew Heffernan.
