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 Caipirina and Quilano were accepted upon representation, but Barbecho was withdrawn from the hold.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

Veselka Farms to Host Bruce Davidson Clinic

"No matter how old you are, be open to all disciplines, learn how to ride a dressage horse, a gaited horse, a show jumper. Go fox hunting and point-to-pointing and horse showing. You’ll learn from all of them and when you do decide which discipline you want to do, you’ll be better at it anyway.”

Horse Heroes: Bellamy

Bellamy, an Oldenburg/Thoroughbred gelding of unknown breeding, came to Tamra Smith’s farm in Southern California with his mane half-way down his neck and filled with burrs. Bellamy had been sitting in a field for a little over a year after unseating several riders in a row and Smith, known for being good with tricky horses, agreed to take him on.
