SYDNEY, Oct. 9, 2017–Deborah MacNicol has been appointed dressage chef d’equipe for Australia through the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, fulfilling a role she has held previously including the 2008 and 2012 Olympics.

Equestrian Australia Dressage Committee announced Monday the appointment takes effect immediately after “an in-depth selection process.”

“Whilst I have filled this role previously, I am looking forward to new challenges and projects and to assisting the Equestrian Australia Dressage Committee and High Performance Panel with their program for the future of Australian Dressage,” Deb was quoted by the federation.

As the World Equestrian Games next year is a priority for Equestrian Australia, she will attend the dressage test event early next year to assess the venue and requirements for travel and accommodation of the team in Tryon.
