Under new FEI WBFSH guidelines that came into effect on January 1, 2018, the French entries for the dressage World Breeding Championship for Young Horses that will take place in Ermelo, the Netherlands, from August 2-5, have been announced by the Société Hippique Francaise:

5yo: Dorian Grey de Hus/Jessica Michel Botton and Star de l'Ocean/Guillaume Recoing

5yo reserves: Fürst Fahrenheit/Damien Dumoulin and Filarmonie de Malleret/Maria José de la Chica Parras

6yo: Caporal de Massa/Arnaud Serre and Dancing Highness/Camille Cheret-Judet

Under the new guidelines, National Federations receive a quota for each age-group for the young-horse championship and must work in cooperation with the country's studbook(s) in terms of the selection process. The minimum eligibility requirement (MER) that must be achieved as a horse/rider combination is 75% (5yo/6yo) and 70% (7yo). 'NF's are responsible for ensuring that the level of the national test used to obtain the MER is equivalent to the level of the FEI tests for 5-, 6- and 7-year-old horses. Horses can only participate in the selection procedure of one NF.'
