Update Regarding Lauren Barwick and Engelbrecht at FEI World Equestrian Games™ Tryon 2018
Equestrian Canada – Mill Spring, NC, Sept. 22, 2018 – Equestrian Canada (EC) confirms that unfortunately, Lauren Barwick and Engelbrecht will not compete in the Grade III Freestyle Test on Sept. 22, 2018 at the FEI World Equestrian Games™ Tryon 2018 (WEG) in Mill Spring, NC.
“Unfortunately Engelbrecht knocked himself. The welfare of our horses is paramount, and therefore Engelbrecht will not compete in the Freestyle,” said Christine Peters, EC Senior Manager of the Dressage Olympic/Paralympic Program and Canadian Para-Dressage Team Manager. “He will receive the very best vet care, and we look forward to seeing him and Lauren Barwick in future competitions.”
Barwick, 41, a four-time Canadian Paralympian and three-time WEG competitor, secured eighth place finishes in both the Grade III Individual on Sept. 19 and the Grade III Team Test on Sept. 21 at WEG 2018 with Engelbrecht (Vivaldi x Rimini 41), the nine-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding she co-owns with Brenda Ladd.
Closing out WEG 2018 for Canada will be the Canadian Vaulting Team, competing in the final Squad Freestyle on Sept. 22. For the full schedule, live results and more info visit https://tryon2018.com.
