Denis Lynch’s selection for the Irish team for London was put on hold following a request to the Olympic Council of Ireland.
Lynch rode Lantinus as a member of the Irish team which finished third in the Nations’ Cup at Aachen, Germany on Thursday.
Following a mandatory test of the horses taking part in the competition, Lantinus tested positive for hypersensitivity of his legs.
On Tuesday Horse Sport Ireland, the Irish governing body for equestrian sport, announced that it had nominated Lynch with horse Abberbvail van het Dingeshof to the Olympic Council of Ireland. It also nominated Billy Twomey (Tinka’s Serenade).
