Germany’s Lars Nieberg replaces Switzerland’s Lesley McNaught in the “Trophée des Légendes Platinium Sellier présenté par les Sports Équestres Militaires”, a charity event scheduled for Saturday, June 10, at 7pm (warm-up on Friday, June 9, at 7.05pm). In a rotating final format (each rider completes the course with all four horses), he will be up against Frédéric Cottier, Markus Fuchs and Éric Navet.
Lars Nieberg (Germany, 59 years old)
Olympic team champion in 1996 in Atlanta with For Pleasure, then in 2000 in Sydney with Esprit Frh, world champion in 1998, three times on the World Cup final podium, Lars Nieberg was for many years one of the pillars of the Mannschaft, then dominant on the international scene. Retired from competition since 2021, he now trains a number of riders, including his son Gerrit, the revelation of 2022 with a success in the Rolex Grand Prix in Aachen, and also present in La Baule this year.
