The final selection trial to determine the U.S. team for the World Equestrian Games is almost upon us in Germany, where Boyd Martin and Phillip Dutton will be making their best case for a spot on the team. Otis Barbotiere, Shamwari 4, and Mighty Nice have arrived and settled in for the first horse inspection tomorrow. Jenni is en route to Germany as we speak, so you will have the top-notch coverage you’ve come to expect coming your way beginning tomorrow.
If you’re wanting to keep abreast of all things Luhmühlen, there are a few options available. Of course, you’ll want to keep refreshing our homepage each day for the latest in the Adventures of Jenni and Mr. Chinch: Germany Edition.
The first horse inspection will be at 4:30 local time (10:30 EST) tomorrow, and dressage will be tested over Thursday and Friday. Ride times are not yet available, but they should be live after the horse inspection tomorrow.
If you are an FEI TV subscriber, or if you want to become one, there will be live streaming of the cross country on Saturday and the show jumping on Sunday available. Germany is six hours ahead of Eastern time. Cross country begins at 8:30 am local time, which would be 2:30 am EST. Show jumping will start at 12:55 pm local time, or 6:55 am EST.
Luhmühlen also has a running Twitter account and Facebook page, which have been actively updating with sights from around the facility in the days leading up the event. No word yet on whether or not they will be running live updates, but this is probably your best bet to keep up with everything as it happens.
