Authentic And Sapphire Lead A Strong U.S. Team

The backbone of the U.S. team is Beezie Madden on Authentic and McLain Ward on Sapphire. With team
gold from the 2004 Athens Olympic Games and team silver from the 2006 World Equestrian Games (Germany) to their credit, this pair knows what needs to be done to earn medals.

Ward and Madden plan their horses’ schedules around these major international championships, and Sapphire and Authentic look to be on top form. They both received byes from the selection trials but looked prepared as Authentic won the $200,000 CN Worldwide Grand Prix (Fla.) in March and Sapphire won the $200,000 Budweiser American Invitational (Fla.) in April.

At the Aachen CHIO (Germany), they went head-to-head against the top European horses and riders—Authentic  finished fourth in the Rolex Grand Prix of Aachen and Sapphire placed sixth—and they each turned in a clear round during the Mercedes Benz Samsung Super League Nations Cup.

Joining them at the Olympic Games will be two horses with less experience, but all the talent. Laura Kraut—an Olympic veteran in 2000 with Liberty—will take the talented young Cedric to Hong Kong. Cedric won the selection trials in Florida in convincing fashion with just one rail down over five rounds of jumping. The gray has a huge jump, but Kraut has developed the 10-year-old gelding slowly.

After the trials, Kraut took Cedric to Europe and showed him at smaller shows in Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands. At Cedric’s Super League Nations Cup debut at Rotterdam (the Netherlands), he turned in 5- and 12-fault rounds and Kraut said she learned a lot about how to manage him over two rounds of jumping. In the Longines Grand Prix of Rotterdam, Cedric jumped to a double-clear and third place. At Aachen, he and Kraut put up 5- and 8-fault Nations Cup scores.

Will Simpson weathered a nervous moment during the selection trials when Carlsson vom Dach injured himself in his stall during a thunderstorm and they had to sit out the last round. But team selectors—impressed with the catty gelding’s performances that had put them into second on the trials standings—named him to the short list.

Carlsson traveled to Europe and turned in consistent performances in the Super League Nations Cups. At La Baule (France), they had a clear round and 8 faults and then a double-clear at Rome (Italy). At St. Gallen (Switzerland), they posted scores of clear and 4 faults.

This will be the first international team championship for Simpson, but he’s a veteran of three FEI World Cup Finals and a seasoned campaigner. He has all the confidence in the world in Carlsson. “He’s extremely scopey, extremely careful and extremely fast,” he said after the trials. “He’s got wings; he’s like a bird.”

Anne Kursinksi, the reserve with Champ 163, has three Olympic Games on her resume, with team silver from 1988 in Seoul and 1996 in Atlanta.

The Canadian Team Takes A Wealth Of Experience To Hong Kong

At the Lummen CSIO (Belgium), the Canadian Olympic team made a trial run and claimed second in the Nations Cup—one rail behind the Norwegian team.

Team stalwart Ian Millar leads his fellow Canadians to Hong Kong. Millar has represented Canada on seven Olympic, five World Championship and five Pan American Games teams, and his countrymen can’t imagine riding on a team without him. In an unusual move, selectors named both of Millar’s horses—In Style and Redefin—to the team, and he’ll choose between them in Hong Kong.

Jill Henselwood knows Special Ed inside and out. He was her ride for individual gold and team silver medals at the 2007 Pan American Games (Brazil), and he’s also a veteran of the 2006 FEI World Cup Final (Malaysia) and the 2006 World Equestrian Games (Germany). Special Ed won the King’s Cup Grand Prix at the Madrid (Spain) CSI in May. Their final prep for the Olympic Games was consistent ribbon-winning performances this summer at the Spruce Meadows (Alta.) venue.

Mac Cone was the highest-placed Canadian rider at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games and the 2002 World Equestrian Games (Spain). Ole won the $50,000 Kilkenny International Grand Prix (Fla.) in February, then helped the Canadian team take second in the CN Nations Cup (Fla.) in March.

Eric Lamaze is perhaps Canada’s best hope for an individual medal. Hickstead is a spectacular jumper, and Lamaze has nurtured his talent. At the 2006 WEG, Lamaze and Hickstead jumped clear rounds in the speed leg and the first round of the Nations Cup and were in second place individually, but 12 faults in the third round of individual competition took them out of the running.

In 2007, Hickstead won five grand prix classes, including the prestigious $876,681 CN International Grand Prix at the Spruce Meadows Masters (Alta.). He and Lamaze also took individual bronze and team silver at the Pan American Games.

But in October 2007, Hickstead colicked and underwent surgery. After a four-month recovery, Hickstead returned to the show ring again in Wellington, Fla., and started winning right away, topping the $75,000 Adequan Grand Prix in February and placing second in two more big classes.

This will be Lamaze’s first Olympic appearance, though he has four WEG appearances to his credit.
