Changes in the Dutch showjumping squads

10 10 2012

The Dutch Chef d'Equipe Rob Ehrens has announced some changes in the Dutch showjumping squad. Marc Houtzager now has a second horse - Sterrehof's Tamino - in the Olympic squad in addition to Sterrehof's Opium, and four combinations are added to the B-squad, Albert Voorn with Tobalio, Hendrik-Jan Schuttert with Cerona HS, Jeroen Dubbeldam with BMC Utascha SFN and Henk van de Pol with BMC Warrant TN.

Marc Houtzager and Sterrehof's Tamino contributed to the Olympic team silver in London so it is no surprise that they have made it into the Olympic squad. The 22 year old Hendrik-Jan Schuttert is at this point the youngest rider in the Dutch squad.
