The United States will be represented by four formidable combinations looking to showcase the form that has earned them top placings and accolades throughout the 2013 season. Clark Montgomery , Tiana Coudray, Marilyn Little and Will Faudree have all received Land Rover Competition Grants to compete against many of the best in the world in Aachen.

Montgomery (Wiltshire, UK) has been based in the UK since the end of last year and has already found success. With his Aachen partner, Jessica Montgomery, Carole Montgomery, Janet Higgins, and Elizabeth Smith’s Universe, he collected a seventh place finish at the Belton CIC3*. In May, they completed the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials in 27th place in the horses first attempt at the CCI4* level.

Coudray (Ojai, CA) brings her 2012 Olympic Games partner Jatial Inc.’s Ringwood Magister to the Aachen CICO3* this week. The British-based combination, known for their proficiency in the first phase, completed their first Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials in May in 17th place.

Little (Frederick, MD) is utilizing a Land Rover Competition Grant for a second time this week in Aachen. In May, she competed in France at the Saumur CCI3* finishing in eighth place with Raylyn Farms Inc. and Phoebe and Michael Manders’ RF Smoke on the Water. Little will again ride the talented gelding in Aachen and look to display the form that earned them the 2012 USEF National CCI3* Eventing Reserve Championship.

Faudree (Hoffman, NC) has been on a tear in 2013 collecting top placings on U.S. soil and abroad with Jennifer Mosing’s talented string of horses. In Aachen, he will ride Mosing’s 2012 Plantation Field International CIC3* winner Pawlow. In April, the pair completed the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event presented by Land Rover for the second time, finishing in sixth place.
