Christian Ahlmann’s Taoulbet Z (Galoubet A x Polydor) is out for approxemately six weeks with an irritation in a tendon. And with the European Championships in Madrid opening on the 14th of September, it looks like Germany has lost one of their best combinations for the team. Ahlmann’s second horse Codex One is also out at the moment.
Germany’s performances in Madrid could also be affected by the fact that Marco Kutscher and Marcus Ehning travel with their top horses Cash and Plot Blue to the GCT competition in Rio de Janeiro nine days before the championships. About the long travels ahead of the championships, Otto Becker states to a German newspaper; "This is certainly not the situation we wish for." Janne-Friederike Meyer and Carsten-Otto Nagel, both ready for the Europeans, will not go to Rio. Ludger Beerbaum has apparently not decided wheter to go or not at this point.
