German cross discipline Grand Prix rider Ingrid Klimke has seen her Tokyo dream go up in smoke after she injured herself in a fall on a cross country course in Poland last weekend.
The 53-year old Klimke is German Olympic squad listed in both dressage and eventing.
With the Hanoverian stallion Franziskus (by Fidertanz x Alabaster) she was a contender for a dressage team spot but that story ended in April 2021 when the stallion injured himself and would not be fit in time for the team selection trials
Today, Klimke also announced that her Olympic dream of riding at her 6th Games as an eventing rider has come to an end. Last Saturday she fell during cross country and sustained a severe injury to her chest, left shoulder and ribs.
