TRYON, North Carolina, Sept. 6, 2018–Suppenkasper has been substituted in place of Rosamunde as the mount for Steffen Peters on the United States team at the World Equestrian Games where dressage starts in six days.
Steffen of San Diego, California confirmed the change to dressage-news.com, a day ahead of the American team moving from a nearby equestrian facility to the Tryon International Equestrian Center.
He said that Rosamunde, the 11-year-old Rhinelander mare, missed some days of training after arrival in North Carolina to join Laura Graves and Verdades, Adrienne Lyle and Salvino and Kasey Perry-Glass and Dublet.
“We feel,” he told dressage-news.com, “that he (Suppenkasper) is more prepared for next week.”
Suppenkasper, a 10-year-old KWPN gelding also owned by Four Winds Farm, was already in North Carolina as the horse had been named as an alternate for Steffen.
Suppenkasper was bought for Steffen to compete as a prospect for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. Steffen competed in Europe this summer along with other U.S. team prospects.
