Eventing at the Olympics starts in less than 20 hours with the first horse inspection. As of right now, the plan is still for Manoir De Carneville, Mighty Nice, and Remington to travel to the Greenwich Park venue in a trailer at 4am London time. They will pass through an equine staging area that is about 6 miles away from Greenwich, where they will be checked for health and security. Then the horses will move into a “clean van” and ship into the venue to be staged inside in case the Team USA needs them for a last minute substitute before the jog. It’s going to be a long day for the horses and their handlers as one last act of service by the reserves. Now for your links:
