Viking is Michael's Olympic reserve horse - not Amai

Wednesday, 25 July 2012

Michael and Viking are the British reserves. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.According to horseandhound.co.uk Michal Whitaker will ride Viking in case he gets called up as the British reserve for the Olympic Games. The decision has supposedly been made on the basis of veterinary advice as the three Olympic rounds demands any horse to be in perfect condition to stand a fair chance. Even though GIG Amai and Michael recently won the Aachen Grand Prix Amai recently came back from an injury and the decision has been made with "the best interests and welfare of Amai".
