SPANISH SENIOR DRESSAGE TEAM
Rudolf Zeilinger appointed team trainer
For almost 20 years Rudolf "Rudi" Zeilinger was coaching the Danish dressage team. Recently he resigned from this role to face a new challenge.
The German Dressage Grand Prix rider and trainer is now moving towards southern hemispheres to take over his new role as trainer of the Spanish Senior team. The 53-year-old was guiding the Danes for 19 years but for him time has come to pass the torch to Princess Nathalie zu Sayn-Wittgenstein.
Until 2012, the Spanish team trained under Jean Bemelmans guidance, and after his withdrew, the former Spanish Grand Prix rider Rafael Soto assisted the team even though he was never announced as official team trainer.
