Statement by Cassio Rivetti (Official) facebook

“We are very sad about the devastating news which we have just learnt before the final.

I really don’t understand this decision.
Vivant trotted at today’s vet check the same as at the first one.
I don’t know what criteria were used at this vet check.

Yesterday the horse jumped very well and he had no problems.
Additionally, others horses which trotted less well passed today’s vet check.

I would like to thank the whole Ukraine team and my partners who are supporting during this difficult period.

Vivant is in great shape.
We will be back competing on the showground very soon.”
