No Selection Trials For 2014 WEG Show Jumping Team

Since the mid-1990s, the U.S. Equestrian Federation has used selection trials in some manner to select teams for major international championships—the Olympic Games and World Equestrian Games. The selection was done purely objectively for many years, based just on the selection trials results.

Former chef d’equipe George Morris re-introduced some subjectivity to the process in the last decade, adding the ability for a selection committee to name a team member or two independent of their trials results.

Cedric and Kraut Claim $150,000 CN U.S. Open Grand Prix CSIO****, and Tristan Takes Trials Title

While Laura Kraut and Cedric have amassed a spectacular international record together, including a team gold medal at the 2008 Olympic Games in Bejing, China, there’s one type of class they haven’t won all that much: grand prix.   

But Cedric jumped to the top of the $150,000 CN U.S. Open Grand Prix CSIO****  today, March 7, in Wellington, Fla., edging out Danny Boy and Beezie Madden, who took second.

“I think this is only the second grand prix win of his career, because normally we’re jumping in trials or Nations Cups,” said Kraut.
