British athlete Charlotte Dujardin and Mount St John Freestyle were eliminated from the Grand Prix competition today at the FEI Dressage European Championship Rotterdam.

Blood was found on the left flank of the horse in the post-competition check and, in accordance with Article 430.7.6.2 of the FEI Dressage Rules, this results in elimination.
Elimination under this rule does not imply there was any intent to injure the horse, but the rules are in place to protect the welfare of all competing horses.
