Changes Made To U.S. Pan American Show Jumping Team

Sep 20, 2011 - 4:07 AM

The U.S. Equestrian Federation announced changes to the 2011 Pan American Games show jumping team, which they originally named Sept. 12.

While the four horse-and-rider pairs that the federation recommended to the U.S. Olympic Committee to represent the United States will remain the same, traveling reserve rider Lauren Hough, Wellington, Fla., withdrew Quick Study after the gelding put in an uncharacteristic performance at Spruce Meadows (Alberta) in the Grand Prix on Sept. 11.

The first substitute, Margie Engle and Indigo, have also withdrawn, thus the second substitute, Kent Farrington and RCG Farm’s Uceko will now serve as the traveling reserve.

The 2011 Pan American Games will be held Oct. 14-30 in Guadalajara, Mexico, and the U.S. team will be aiming to place in the top three as a team to qualify for the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
