The 2019 Pan American Games in Lima, Peru got underway this morning with the first horse inspection. Forty-seven horses were presented in front of the ground jury: Jane Hamlin (USA), Jo Young (CAN), and Delano Bastos de Miranda (BRA) at the Army Equitation School in La Molina, Lima, Peru.

Four countries presented a traveling reserve, so 42 pairs will start the competition. Nine countries have teams of four, Colombia is bringing forward a team of three, and Honduras and Ecuador will be represented by individual riders.

The U.S. team including traveling reserve, Liz Halliday-Sharp and Cooley Quicksilver, all passed and will move on to tomorrow’s dressage phase.

Three horses were sent to the hold box including Jhonatan Fabian Rodriguez’ Caipirina from Colombia, Carlos Villarroel’s Quilano from Chile, and Ricardo Jequier’s Barbecho also from Chile. Caipirina and Quilano were accepted upon representation, but Barbecho was withdrawn from the hold.

Dressage is scheduled to start at 9:00 a.m. CT tomorrow. You can keep up with the live scores here and follow all the action on the USEA’s social media: Facebook | Twitter | Instagram

Now on Course: Heartbeats and Hoofbeats

My name is Tayah Fuller and I’m 14 years old. “On course” to me is a phrase that makes my heart pump fast and my excitement go wild. There is no better feeling than galloping through a field or flying over cross-country jumps with my heart thrumming along, especially when it is with my best friend. You see, I was born with a congenital heart murmur. While it has never really affected my athletic abilities, the one time that I notice it is when I am riding through a cross-country course with my horse.

Tack cleaning is one of those barn chores that might not be our favorite but is certainly necessary for keeping our equipment in top shape. Aside from caring for your tack so it lasts for years to come, regular tack maintenance is important for safety. The last thing you want is the potential for a stitch, zipper, or buckle breaking while you're out on course.
