Minna Telde and Santana have been selected to join Tinne Vilhelmson-Silfvén and Don Auriello and Patrik Kittel and Scandic for the Swedish dressage team at the Olympic Games opening in London next month. The Swedish federation annunced Wednesday that Rose Mathisen with Bocelli 1044 is the reserve combination.

Minna, 37, has been competing her 11-year-old black Hanoverian stallion (Sandro Hit x Raffinesse x Rubenstein I) at international Grand Prix only since the beginning of this year. Her selection came after the second best placing of the four members of the Swedish team at the Nations Cup in Rotterdam last week.

She rode for Sweden at the 2004 Athens Olympics, the 2010 World Equestrian Games and the the 2003 and 2009 European Championships.

Tinne Vilhelmson-Silfvén and Don Auriello and Patrik Kittel and Scandic were named to the team earlier.
