US Equestrian Announces Update to the U.S. Eventing Team for the Lima 2019 Pan American Games

By USEF - Press Release

US Equestrian has announced an update to the U.S. Eventing Team for the Lima 2019 Pan American Games. Unfortunately, Tamie Smith has withdrawn Fleeceworks Royal, Judith McSwain’s 10-year-old Holsteiner mare, as announced through Smith's Facebook page. Smith’s direct reserve horse Mai Baum, a 13-year-old German Sport Horse gelding owned by Alexandra Ahearn, Ellen Ahearn, and Eric Markell, will replace Fleeceworks Royal. A direct reserve horse is an automatic replacement should the original horse on which an athlete was named need to be substituted.

Smith
(Murrieta, Calif.) and Mai Baum join the following athlete-and-horse combinations on the Pan American Games U.S. Eventing Team previously announced.

Boyd Martin (Cochranville, Pa.) with Tsetserleg, Christine Turner’s 12-year-old Trakehner gelding
Direct Reserve: On Cue, Turner’s 13-year-old English Sport Horse mare

The following athlete-and-horse combination has been named as the Traveling Reserve to the U.S. Eventing Team:

Elisabeth Halliday-Sharp
(Ocala, Fla.) with Cooley Quicksilver, The Monster Partnership’s eight-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding

The 2019 U.S. Pan American Eventing Team is subject to approval by the United States Olympic Committee.
