WEG: Syrian rider Ahmad Saber Hamcho at the games with Citizenguard Cadjanine Z


There have been further developments in the saga involving the young Belgian rider Constant van Paesschen, who was excluded by coaches from the Belgian Team for the WEG despite a successful appeal to the sporting authorities (click here to read more).
The latest twist in the plot has seen Constant’s top horse, Citizenguard Cadjanine Z, handed to another rider by its owner Alain van Campenhoudt. His name is 21 year-old Syrian rider Ahmad Saber Hamcho who, unlike his Belgian colleague, will be at the World Equestrian Games.
It isn’t the first time that Alain van Campenhoudt has changed riders, with important equestrian figures such as Gregory Wathelet and Rodrigo Pessoa also having found themselves in situations of disagreement with the owner. Rodrigo Pessoa for instance had already decided that for the WEG he would have competed with Status. Constant van Paesschen is now the latest to join the list and will have to get used to the fact that he is about to lose one of his most important mounts despite the excellent results achieved.
After this dramatic affair, all eyes will naturally be on Cadjanine Z during the event and it will be interesting to see how she performs.
