I have just gotten word that David O’Connor will be submitting his application to coach Team USA later this week. The Olympic gold medalist and current Canadian coach joins the combined application of Phillip Dutton and Bobby Costello as the only two confirmed applicants vying to replace Captain Mark Phillips when Mark retires at the end of 2012. The deadline for candidates to come forward with their applications and proposals for guiding the US Eventing Team is January 31st. We’ll have much more soon. Go eventing.
