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 Unfortunately, Tamie Smith has withdrawn Fleeceworks Royal, Judith McSwain’s 10-year-old Holsteiner mare, as announced through Smith's Facebook page.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

Doug Payne (Aiken, S.C.) with Starr Witness, an eight-year-old KWPN mare owned by Payne, Laurie McRee, and Catherine Winter

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.

The 2020 USEA FEH Central Championships Crown the First Round of FEH Champions

The 2020 United States Eventing Association (USEA) Future Event Horse (FEH) Central Championships took place yesterday, September 24 at Haras Hacienda in Magnolia, Texas. With four new champions crowned, this marked one of the first USEA Championships to be held in 2020. Jayne Lloyd, the organizer of the Championships shared, “Everyone had a nice day with their youngsters. The quality of horses is getting better and better. Haras [Hacienda] is a lovely facility to put this on – great stabling, great footing, all indoor because we’ve had some bad weather the past few days. But overall, I think it all went really well.”
