Showtime FRH, ridden by Dorothee Schneider for 2016 Olympic team gold medal, has been pulled out of the German championships in Balve this week, not yet back at top form after recovering from an injury.

The 12-year-old Hanoverian gelding has competed at only two shows, at the end of 2016 and the end of 2017, since the Rio Olympics.

Dorothee will compete Sammy Davis, Jr. in the championships that are at all three Grand Prix levels and will determine selection of the team for the Nations Cup at Aachen, Germany next month.

Showtime is not ruled out as a prospect for the Tryon World Equestrian Games team–if ready, the horse could compete in the CDI4* Aachen.
