Equine Canada announced the 2015 National Eventing Team tonight, with 10 combinations on the Short List and 32 combinations on the Long List. Check out the qualification criteria and all the names of the horses and riders below, and you can click here to view the full press release.

Update: There have been questions as to why Hawley Bennett-Awad and Gin & Juice and Kendal Lehari and Totally Frank appear on the list, as Hawley no longer has the ride on Gin & Juice and Totally Frank was retired after an injury at Fair Hill. Jen Holling, a selector for the Canadian team, offered the following explanation:

“This Canadian Short and Long list is based on past performance results. Hawley Bennett-Awad and Kendal Lehari both achieved the required results to be listed on the Short list. Irrelevant of what the future holds for either pair, they have achieved the parameters set for this list and are to be recognized for those accomplishments.”
