The competition: The Pan Ams will run at the CCI3*-L level (formerly CCI2* under the old FEI star system). The dressage test is the 2015 FEI 3* Test B. Teams will be made up of four horses and riders with a drop score.

What’s at stake: All countries from FEI Olympic Group D (North America) and E (Central and South America) will be vying for Tokyo qualification at the Pan Ams, which will award Olympic qualification to the top two teams in Lima. No countries from Groups D and E qualified at the 2018 WEG Tryon, so every country that fields a team for Lima will be battling it out for Tokyo qualification.

The teams: Ten nations are fielding teams — Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Guatemala, Mexico, Peru, Uruguay and the United States. Ecuador and Honduras are sending individuals only. There are a total of 42 definite entries. Substitutions may be made up until two hours before the start of dressage.

The officials: The ground jury is led by Jane Hamlin (USA) with Jo Young (CAN) and Delano Bastos de Miranda (BRA). The foreign TD is Ataide Pereira (BRA). The chief steward is Eileen Pritchard Bryan (USA). Juan Carlos Nunez (URU) heads the appeals committee. The cross country course designer is Jose Ortelli (ARG) with Pierre Michelet (FRA) as adviser. The show jumping course designer is Guilherme Jorge (BRA).
