2010 WEG eventing team applicants list

Almost anything in life starts with filling out an application–getting a library card, going to college, getting paroled, and yes, representing the United States at the 2010 World Equestrian Games.
Below is a list of the 2010 US WEG applicants.  Applications must have been submitted online, faxed, hand delivered, or postmarked by April 30th.  So it’s possible that one or two names might be missing from the list if their snail mail application has not been delivered yet.
As you will note, some of the names on the list have not obtained their “certificate of capability” yet, which is achieved by a qualifying score at either one CCI4* or a CCI3* and a CIC3* together.  According to FEI rules, applicants have until August 16th to achieve their certificate of capability.
Anyone who didn’t apply by April 30th, will not be representing the US at the WEGs.

Note: It’s important to think of this list as a comprehensive list defining possible candidates.  Of course, not all the horses on this list are equally likely to make the team–not by a long shot.  I’ll leave most of the analysis for the comments, but I haven’t heard anything since last week that changes my opinion that there are 13 primary horse candidates for the WEG team right now, and that everyone else is on the outside looking in.  Go eventing.
