This is good news for The USA and upcoming World Dressage Masters where Totilas will be making his only appearance in Florida in January. The Horse and Hound has reported that Matthias Rath’s and Germany's top grand prix horse Totilas is recovering from a minor injury to his foreleg while training on Wednesday (30 November). But a prompt veterinary investigation has shown that there is no serious injury and no strain to the suspensory ligament. Matthias said: “We need to see over the coming days how the healing process develops.” The pair is now expected to compete at the 2011 CDI-W Frankfurt later this month. “I hope I can still start in Frankfurt. I’m very connected to the tournament and I have been looking forward to going into the arena with [Totilas] for weeks,” said Matthias. On Monday night Totilas had appeared in a live performance on the German TV channel Hessian Broadcasting.
