Michael Jung isn’t keeping any cats in the bag with regard to his 2017 gameplan. He has announced his competition intentions for his top horses on his website, and there are a lot of “what if” storylines to get excited about.

What if fischerRocana FST wins Rolex for a third consecutive year? Could La Biosthetique-Sam FBW take Badminton twice in a row?

“He also has a surprise at hand,” the website reads. “The currently planned horse for the European Championships: the 9-year-old Hanoverian gelding Lennox (Sunlight xx X Heraldik xx).” The Europeans take place Aug. 17-20 at Strzegom. The horse has only competed through the CCI2* level thus far, so Michael must have a lot of faith in him!
