Amsterdam and Laurens van Lieren, it seems not a happy marriage. Two years ago during his ride in the World Cup™ Final in Amsterdam, a tray with glasses and dishes dropped loudly and disturbed Hexagon’s Ollright’s test. Now a few days before leaving for Amsterdam, a slight irregularity during the training made decide Van Lieren to cancel his entrée with Hexagon’s Ollright.

“My vet hasn’t discovered anything at all, however as Amsterdam is not the most important in my schedule and consulting teammanager Mariette van Gansewinkel and teamcoach Sjef Janssen, we decided it would be in the best interest not to take any risk.” Laurens van Lieren will compete in the Intermediate class and in the Dressage Gala Evening Sunday Night.
