Seidel Setback

San Diego-based three-time-Olympian Guenter Seidel was thrown from his World Equestrian Games prospect, UII, and fractured his pelvis. The incident took place June 13 during the pair’s first day of work in Germany with former U.S.E.T. dressage coach Klaus Balkenhol. Seidel was taken to a local hospital, then air lifted to Münster, where he was operated on and a plate was installed.

Seidel’s long time sponsor Jane Brown reported that, fortunately, he was wearing a helmet, as per his normal practice, when the fall occurred. She explained that UII was a little too fresh on their first ride after the long trip from California and that he threw Seidel in a bucking streak. She relayed that Seidel is expected to make a full recovery and the first step will likely be watching Balkenhol continue UII’s preparation.
