Lima, Peru—Aug. 4
Twenty-four horses presented at the final eventing horse inspection this morning at the Pan American Games. Canada’s Mississippi and Dana Cooke did not present.
Four horses were held: Argentina’s J B G Espuelas Atila (Juan Benitez Gallardo), Honduras’s Hipolita (Pedro José Espinosa), Uruguay’s SVR Energico (Lucia Chieza Pietra) and Peru’s Vento (Marcelino Cardenas Salazar). J B G Espuelas Atila, SVR Energico and Hipolita passed upon re-inspection. Vento was spun, meaning Peru will not finish a team.
All U.S. horses passed inspection, and the United States will be the only country moving forward to show jumping with four riders. Canada, Mexico, Brazil and Argentina will also be looking to finish full teams. Get caught up on yesterday’s cross-country action with a live blog of the action and beautiful photos.
Show jumping kicks off at 10:30 a.m. Central time.
