Chef d'Equipe Eduardo Beccar Varela
Josefina Chas with Riverwatch
Andres Cordoba with Koela de la Dour
Mercedes Tapia with Trek Rania
Josefina rode in WEGs at Jerez, Spain, in 2002, and Aachen, Germany, in 2006. This will be the first WEG for Andres, an Argentinian born in Corrientes, who lives in Italy competing there for 6 years. He qualified with 2 horses, Koela de la Dour and Maestro.
Josefina and Mercedes are the two Elite riders from Argentina, so they will be riding foreign horses. Mercedes' mare, Trek Rania, is owned by Josep Tapias from Vic, Spain, near Barcelona. Unrelated to each other, this will be the first time Mercedes and Josep will meet, at the WEG. Having first started riding horses in the year 2000, this will be Mercedes' 5th WEG, having previously ridden at Jerez, Spain, in 2002, Dubai, UAE, in 2005, in Aachen, Germany, in 2006, and Lexington, KY, USA, in 2010!
Eduardo was previously Argentina's Chef d'Equipe in Dubai and Aachen.
