The USEF has just named the Land Rover U.S. Eventing Team for the Land Rover Great Meadow International presented by Adequan® CICO3*, taking place July 8-10 in The Plains, Va.
The following athlete-and-horse combinations will compose the tam (in alphabetical order):
Phillip Dutton (West Grove, Pa.) and Ann Jones and Thomas Tierney’s Fernhill Fugitive, a 2005 Irish Sport Horse gelding
Lauren Kieffer (Middleburg, Va.) and Marie Le Menestrel’s Meadowbrook’s Scarlett, a 2007 Thoroughbred cross mare
Boyd Martin (Cochranville, Pa.) and Gloria Callen’s Welcome Shadow, a 2005 Thoroughbred cross mare
Clark Montgomery (Tetbury, England) and Holly and William Becker, Kathryn Kraft, and Jessica Montgomery’s Loughan Glen, a 2003 Irish Sport Horse gelding
The following combination will serve as the alternate:
Maya Black (Clinton, Wash.) and Dawn and Jonathan Dofelmier’s Doesn’t Play Fair, a 2005 Holsteiner gelding
Maya will compete as an individual unless a replacement to the team is necessary.
If the team roster rings a bell, it is of course because it identical to the U.S. rider squad we are sending to the Rio Olympics, but with Phillip, Lauren and Boyd riding their direct reserve horses instead of the horses with which they have been named to the team.
Jenni is just rolling into town and will be bringing us all the action live as it unfolds, so keep it locked here!
