DRESSAGE - THE OLYMPIC DREAM
The Spanish Purebred Stallion “Fuego XII”, belonging to Miguel Ángel de Cárdenas, is the first horse to be chosen by the Spanish national trainer Jean Bemelmans, to be part of the team that will be going to Hong Kong in August.
This is great news for all amateurs and PRE horse lovers!! It is also a great opportunity to promote the possibilities of our PRE horse internationally. With this news, many of the doubts about who would be attending the Olympic Equestrian Games are starting to be clarified. In the past months, “Fuego XII” and Juan Manuel Muñoz have made it to the 45th position in the FEI ranking, coming very close to “Wie Atlantico” and Juan Matute, who currently take nº 43. What seems clear, is that the ranking is not the only decisive factor taken into account by the national trainer Jean Bemelmans. In a few days, we shall know which other two partners will be traveling with the Spanish stallion “Fuego XII”. Most people confidently support “Faberge”, with Beatriz Ferrer-Salat, as a likely participant, which leaves the third and final position to be fought for by “Prestige”, with Jordi Domingo, and “Wie Atlántico”, with Juan Matute.
The Atlanta ‘96 Olympic Games was the first time that the Spanish Dressage Team reached an Olympic Final. This was the first time that PRE horses had ever participated! Their names: EVENTO, FLAMENCO and INVASOR. Sydney 2000 was the next step and the team included two PRE horses, INVASOR and DISTINGUIDO, and finished in 7th place.
In 2002, Spain’s development exploded at the WEG in Jerez, where the team won the bronze medal, again with INVASOR II, and DISTINGUIDO.
