The United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) Ad Hoc Committee on Selection has approved naming McLain Ward with both Antares F and Sapphire to the showjumping long list for the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Due to the fact that Ward will not be able to compete in the Selection Trials because of an injury he sustained in January 2012, the USEF Selectors in consultation with Chef d'Equipe George Morris and team veterinarian Dr. Tim Ober, voted unanimously to name Ward on both Antares F and Sapphire to the showjumping long list for the Olympics at this time.
The USEF Selection Procedure for the US showjumping team, gives the selectors the discretion to recommend up to five athlete/horse combinations for the long list before the conclusion of the Selection Trials.
At the conclusion of the Selection Trials, athlete/horse combinations will be named to the long list according to their ranking in the Trials in addition to athlete/horse combinations named through discretionary selection. The Selection Trials run March 21-24, 2012 at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center in Wellington, FL.
