USEF Names Eventing Winter Training List

RELEASE: December 9, 2007

Lexington, KY - The United States Equestrian Federation’s Eventing High Performance Committee has approved the following horse and rider combinations for the Eventing Winter Training List. These riders will have the opportunity to train with Chef d’Equipe, Capt. Mark Phillips and Laura Kraut, a member of the U.S. Show Jumping Team, in preparation for the 2008 Olympic Games.

Building on the success at the 2007 Pan American Games, the Winter training sessions are an opportunity to fine tune skills. It is anticipated that some of the riders on this winter training list will receive USEF training grants to aid in their preparations for the Olympics and other future international championships.
