Eventing at CHIO Aachen kicked off Thursday with the jog and continues with dressage/show jumping on Friday and cross country on Saturday. Over 40 riders representing 10 nations make up the entry list and we’ll all be on the edges of our seats, be it in the 40,000-seat Hauptstadion or more of a home-couch type situation, to see who steps up to the podium.
The U.S. team:
- Will Coleman and Off The Record, a 2009 Irish Sport Horse gelding owned by the Off the Record Syndicate
- Sydney Elliott and QC Diamantaire, a 2010 Oldenburg gelding owned by Carol Stephens
- Ariel Grald and Leamore Master Plan, a 2009 Irish Sport Horse gelding owned by Annie Eldridge
- Tamie Smith and Mai Baum, a 2006 German Sport Horse gelding owned by Alexandra Ahearn, Ellen Ahearn, and Eric Markell
Lauren Nicholson and Vermiculus are competing as individuals.
