Reaching the highest levels of the sport and representing the USA at a pinnacle competition like the Olympics is not an uncommon goal of many young riders. It is, of course, an honor that few end up achieving. So what’s it like to don that pinque coat and ride for your country.
Riding For The Team, a new book from Trafalger Square Books and the United States Equestrian Team Foundation, edited by Nancy Jaffer, explores just that. The book shares the experiences of athletes from all eight FEI sports, and includes stories from household-name eventers Phillip Dutton, Boyd Martin, David and Karen O’Connor, Kim Severson, Gina Miles, Derek di Grazia, Kerry Millikin, and Amy Tryon. And of course, the horses who gave them the wings to reach their dreams take centerstage as well.
