US Equestrian has announced which horses and riders will represent USA at the Olympic Games in Tokyo.

The team consists of:

  • Kent Farrington and Gazelle (Kashmir van Schuttershof x Indoctro, breeder Werner Heuninckx-Van Hoornyck), owned by Kent Farrington and Robin Cleary Parsky.
  • Laura Kraut and Baloutinue (Balou du Rouet x Landor S, breeder Heinrich Meyer), owned by St. Bride’s Farm.
  • Jessica Springsteen and Don Juan van de Donkhoeve (Bamako de Muze x Heartbreaker, breeder Gustaaf Quintelier (De Donk NV)), owned by Stone Hill Farm.
  • McLain Ward and Contagious (Contagio x For Keeps, breeder Andreas Eisenmenger), owned by Beechwood Stables LLC.

“This weekend’s two simultaneous CSI5* grand prix events in Rotterdam and Windsor completed a long and productive selection process for the Tokyo Olympic Games. Following a very competitive winter circuit in Florida, American riders competed successfully against the world’s best in five major CSI5* events in Europe over the past couple months. I feel very confident that the seasoned group of riders that we will be sending to Tokyo is in top current form and peaking at just the right time. Backing them up as reserves will be Brian Moggre and Lucy Deslauriers, two of the young stars on the international circuit who made a mark for themselves with their one-two finish in the CSI5* Grand Prix of Sopot. We’re looking forward to the next few weeks ahead and are aiming to deliver a strong performance for Team USA in Tokyo,” said Chef d’Equipe Robert Ridland in a statement from US Equestrian.
