Qualifying starts in January 2015 and as far as I am concerned it is once again down to being in the top 2 individuals on the rankings list after the teams are taken out of the equation. It cannot be easy for the competitors in North & South America to make these qualifications - as far as the provisional FEI calendar stands at the moment it looks like there is only one show next year over there. I expect to see a lot more nations choosing to bring their teams across to Europe for the competitions, qualifying points and experience. I read on the USA Para dressage site that they cited Canada's successes at WEG to their team being in Europe during the run up to gain valuable experience and match practice - something that is not so widely available for them in North America.
We shall see what next year brings. as far as future international competitions go - for now Rhaps and I are at Pachesham tomorrow for our first competition since WG!!
Just seen the time...and that its the first of November tomorrow - eek!! A trip to the VI planned in Jan/Feb and three international competitions in GB next year... am best keeping busy!! :-) xxxx
