<br><br>

Nominated entries for the Rolex FEI World Cup™ Jumping Leg at Olympia, The London International Horse Show  (17 – 23 December) have been announced.

Fifty-five competitors from 17 nations have been nominated. Among those are the first eight riders from the top 10 in the FEI’s Rolex World Rankings and 14 riders from the top 20. 

London 2012 Olympic medal winners will be out in force with all three individual medal winners (Switzerlan’s Steve Guerdat, Holland’s Gerco Schroder, Ireland’s Cian O’Connor) competing, as well as the British gold medal winning team (Nick Skelton, Ben Maher, Scott Brash, Peter Charles) and two from the Dutch silver medal winning team (Marc Houtzager and Gerco SchrÖder).

Definite entries will be confirmed on 6 December.

Show director Simon Brooks-Ward said "We are delighted with the nominated entries this year.  To have so many medallists from London 2012, including the full British gold medal winning team and all three medallists from the individual competition is outstanding. Olympia will be a chance for the audience to revisit the triumphs of the Olympic Games and see these top riders back in action. 

We are holding a special celebration on the evening of Wednesday 19 December when Olympia will host a parade of equestrian medallists from across the equestrian teams and disciplines".
