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 Caipirina and Quilano were accepted upon representation, but Barbecho was withdrawn from the hold.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

Jul 06, 2022 Classic Series

USEA Members Share Their Favorite Memories from Steeplechase

There are so many things to love about the USEA Classic Series: the way the conditioning and preparation strengthens your bond with your horse, the educational opportunities to enhance your skills as a rider, and, of course, your chance to experience the rush of the classic long format three-day event. There are eight Classic Series events taking place across the U.S. in the 2022 season and they are a great goal for many horse and rider pairs to work towards. Featuring the traditional long-format phases of roads and tracks and steeplechase in addition to the three regular phases of a horse trial, a USEA Classic Series event puts partnerships to the ultimate test. For riders who have already ticked off completing a long-format event from their bucket list, looking back on the thrill of steeplechase before heading out on cross-country often comes with fond memories. Check out what these USEA riders had to say about their favorite steeplechase moments!
