All U.S. Horses Pass First Pan American Eventing Horse Inspection



Lima, Peru—Aug. 1

Forty-six horses presented at the first inspection for the Pan American eventing competition, including five U.S. combinations.

Three horses were held: Jhonatan Fabian Rodriguez’s Caipirina from Colombia, Carlos Villarroel’s Quilano from Chile and Ricardo Jequier’s Barbecho from Chile. Caipirina and Quilano passed upon re-inspection and Barbecho withdrew. Chile presented five horses in total, so will still have four horses competing. Mexico’s Romana (Fernando Parroquin Delfin), the reserve rider for Mexico, did not present. All other horses passed.

Forty-two horses will compete on dressage day tomorrow.

Here are some pictures from the trot-up.
