US Equestrian has announced the four combinations who will represent the Land Rover U.S. Eventing Team at the FEI Eventing Nations Cup leg hosted at Houghton Hall in Norfolk, UK, from May 26-29, 2022, led by Chef d’Equipe Leslie Law. The US team has previously enjoyed success at this historic venue, taking team silver there in 2018 and bronze in 2017.

“I am really looking forward to returning to Houghton with another team of up-and-coming American athletes. It should be a valuable experience for all and one that we are very lucky that USEF is providing us with,” says Law. “I very much hope that the U.S. team will reap benefits from this experience in the future when perhaps some of these athletes get pulled up for a senior team.”

The following combinations have been selected to represent the Land Rover U.S. Eventing Team and are listed in alphabetical order.
