I’m excited that Poland is going to have a dressage team competing at this summer’s Olympic Games, for the first time in 32 years.

Poland was in reserve to take New Zealand’s place at the Games, and was able to do so when New Zealand was unable to put together a team of three nominated horses and riders.

Katarzyna Miczarek on Ekwador, Beata Stremler on Martini and Michal Rapcewicz on Randon will represent Poland.

Best of luck to all the competitors — whether it’s medals or simply memories to take home.
