Collins one step closer to Tokyo
Annabelle Collins is one step closer to qualifying for the Olympic Games in Tokyo next summer.
The dressage rider and her mount, Joyero VG, have obtained the two requisite qualifying scores to meet the minimum eligibility necessary to compete in Tokyo.
However, confirmation that Collins has secured an individual dressage spot for Bermuda will not be released until the end of the ranking period in December.
Although ten-year-old Joyero VG is still relatively inexperienced, he had his first taste of international competition at the FEI World Equestrian Games in Tryon, North Carolina, in September last year, where the pair placed 57th.
Also on the international horizon for Collins will be the FEI World Cup Finals in Las Vegas in April 2020, having skipped the Pan American Games in Lima, Peru, rather than put Joyero VG through such an arduous journey.
Collins, riding a previous horse called Stern, narrowly missed out on qualifying for the Olympics in London in 2012. Her brother Tim represented Bermuda in eventing at the Olympics in Athens in 2004.
