The U.S. Team Will Be In The Hunt

In the approach to this year’s Olympic Games, some of eventing’s top individual medal contenders—Great Britain’s Toytown and Germany’s Ringwood Cockatoo, for example—were withdrawn with injuries. And the U.S. team wasn’t without its losses, either, most notably in the retirement of team stalwart Winsome Adante last fall and then the untimely passing of Theodore O’Connor this spring.

As a result, the five horses who will compete for the United States will likely be slugging it out for silver or bronze, since Australia looks unbeatable, and a strong British team, among others, will have to be upset as well. But one of the things that keeps the fans in the seats is that anything can happen, and there’s always a chance that the favorites can be caught, as happened on the challenging course at the 2006 World Equestrian Games (Germany).

For the first time, Phillip Dutton will be competing for the U.S. team instead of against it at the Olympic Games, and his three previous Olympic appearances (including two team golds for Australia) will be an important boost this year for the team, whose only other Olympic veteran is Amy Tryon.

Bruce Duchossois’ Connaught, winner of this year’s Rolex Kentucky for Dutton, has to be one of the most careful jumpers in the sport, in addition to his ever-improving dressage. Although his lofty jump sometimes leads to cross-country time penalties, he’s partnered with the rider who best knows how to make up every second on course. “Simon” could be the best U.S. shot at jumping into a top placing, especially with two show jumping rounds counting in the scores.

Tryon is masterful at peaking her horse for championships, and, not surprisingly, she’s run Poggio lightly this year, competing in only three advanced events (in one she pulled up early on cross-country with a broken bridle). With an Olympic Games, two World Championships and a Pan Am Games appearance to their resume, they should contribute a strong team score.

Poggio surprised everyone at the 2006 WEG by steadily moving up the ranks to the individual bronze medal, and, like Connaught, the second show jumping round, unique to the Olympic Games, will play to his strengths. In 2004, by the end of the second jumping round, he was sixth individually and a crucial contributing score to the team bronze medal.

Gina Miles and McKinlaigh may not have made an Olympic appearance before, but they made their first major championship appearance in 2002, as individuals at the WEG in Spain. Since then, they have proved they can jump around just about any course in the world, and they are especially sharp in show jumping, with only two rails on their record in the past three years. Last year they earned the individual bronze medal and team gold at the Pan Am Games (Brazil).

With her second place at Rolex Kentucky this spring, Becky Holder showed that she has worked hard to reach a new level of excellence.

Courageous Comet is an amazing athlete and can certainly produce one of the best dressage tests in this
country, and Holder is likely excited to see how her best compares with the best in the world. Holder ran well at the 2005 Burghley CCI**** (England) but doesn’t have as much international experience as her teammates. However, if Courageous Comet can finish on his dressage score, jumping as quickly and easily as he did at Kentucky, he could have a good chance for an individual medal as well.

**Karen O’Connor and Mandiba were named as last-minute replacements after Heidi White withdrew Northern Spy from the team for veterinary reasons on July 28.

Canada Could Be Stronger Than Ever

The Canadians looked impressive at their spring three-days, and they seem to be going better than ever under David O’Connor’s supervision. While they aren’t yet threatening the winners at the four-star level, they’re looking consistent in all three phases, and when put together in the right combination, could earn one of their highest team placings to date at the Olympic Games in Hong Kong.

They bring forward three members of their 2007 Pan American Games silver-medal team—Kyle Carter, Mike Winter and Sandra Donnelly.

Winter competed in the 2004 Athens Olympics with Balista, and now, aboard Kingpin, he seems to be more competitive than ever, finishing sixth at The Fork CIC****-W (N.C.) and 12th at Rolex Kentucky this spring. He was in the top 10 after dressage at Kentucky and posted just 6.4 time penalties cross-country. Even with three rails down in show jumping, he moved from 13th after cross-country to finish 12th.
Winter was also short-listed with a second horse, Wonderful Will, who had a win in the Red Hills CIC***.

“I feel super lucky to have qualified two horses for the Olympics,” he said. “I’ve never been in this position, and I feel really privileged.”

Donnelly wasn’t far behind Winter at Kentucky, finishing 15th. Although she was 20th after dressage, she and Buenos Aires worked their way up the ranks with 11.2 time penalties and three rails down. Earlier this spring, she was 10th at the Red Hills CIC*** (Fla.). Donnelly will likely be one of the only competitors in Hong Kong who bred her own mount.

Carter finished 18th at Rolex Kentucky, hampered by “Parker’s” dressage score of 70.4, but he posted a double-clear cross-country round and then dropped four rails.

The selectors forgave Selena O’Hanlon’s blip at a corner at Rolex Kentucky, banking instead on the consistent top placings she’s had at other events, such as a fifth at the Red Hills CIC***-W this spring, as well as a win at Rocking Horse (Fla.), a sixth place last fall at the Fair Hill CCI*** (Md.) and a seventh place last spring at the Jersey Fresh CCI*** (N.J.). This will be her first time on a senior championship team.

Samantha Taylor was named to replace Jessica Phoenix, whose horse Exploring sustained an injury in training. This will also be Taylor’s first time on a senior team. Livewire isn’t at his best in dressage, but their jumping record is consistent, and they’ve finished 13th at The Fork CIC***-W this spring and were 10th in the Fair Hill CCI*** last fall.
