The U.S. Equestrian Federation announced a substitute to the short list for the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games NetJets U.S. Show Jumping Team. Jessica Springsteen (Colts Neck, New Jersey) has withdrawn herself from consideration. As a result, Lillie Keenan (New York City) will replace Springsteen on the short list, as approved by the USEF Equestrian Board of Directors and in accordance with the WEG U.S. Show Jumping Team selection procedures.

“After speaking further with my team and my owners, we felt that the WEG was not an ideal target for RMF Swinny Du Parc this year,” said Springsteen. “We will be redirecting her program in order to gain further experience and look forward to future U.S. team opportunities.”
