Following the The Dutta Corp/USEF Grand Prix Dressage National Championship/ Selection Trial for the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games U.S. Dressage Team Short List, held June 12-15, 2014 in Gladstone, N.J., the top eight horses traveled to Europe to compete in CDI competitions. These included Mandatory Outings at CDI4* Fritzens and CHIO Aachen. As part of the selection process in the naming of the Team the performances of all combinations were taken into consideration. It was felt that with just six months of competing at the Grand Prix level it was too soon to ask the talented combination of Caroline Roffman and her 11-year-old Hanoverian mare, Her Highness O, to contend with the World Championship atmosphere of the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games.
