Team USA Dominates Reining At The World Equestrian Games

Sep 13, 2018 - 9:12 AM

Mill Spring, N.C.—Sept. 13

The U.S. athletes spun and slid their way to reining team gold Wednesday night at the World Equestrian Games.

Cade McCutcheon and Custom Made Gun led the U.S. effort with the highest individual score, and it was the fifth time in a row the U.S. team has won the team gold medal at the WEG. Casey Deary and Heavy Duty Chex, Dan Huss and Ms Dreamy and Jordan Larson aboard ARC Gunnabeabigstar rounded out the U.S. effort.

“I was really nervous, but having all these guys at the gate with me really helped,” McCutcheon said. “Their words of encouragement made a big difference.”

Reining competition at the WEG will finish up Saturday night with the individual medal final. Check out our shots from the team competition!
