Rio de Janeiro – Aug. 9

Forty-six horses were presented in this morning’s final eventing horse inspection, and all passed.   

Japan’s Ryuzo Kitajima and Just Chocolate did not present. Sweden’s Frida Andersen withdrew Herta because of a swelling on the horse’s front leg, which appeared during the evening after cross-country.

Three pairs were held but passed upon reinspection; Ireland’s Jonty Evans and Cooley Rorke’s Drift, Japan’s Yoshiaki Oiwa and The Duke Of Cavan and the United States’ Phillip Dutton and Mighty Nice.

Show jumping begins at 10 a.m. Be sure to follow along with our live blog!
