Pan American Games Show Jumping Selection Trials to be Held at Lexington, Kentucky, May 10-17

Gladstone, NJ—April 3, 2003—The United States Equestrian Team (USET) has announced plans for the 2003 Pan American Games show jumping selection trials to take place at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, KY, May 10-17.

Six rounds of jumping will be held over four days and will be used to decide the team of four horse-and-rider combinations plus an alternate to represent the United States at the 2003 Pan American Games in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, August 2-17.

The first trial will be on Saturday, May 10. The second and third trial, where each horse-and-rider combination will jump the same course twice, will follow on Sunday, May 11. Trial number four will take place on Thursday, May 15. In the final trial on Saturday, May 17, each horse-and-rider combination will jump two different courses.

Horse-rider combinations must qualify for the trials by jumping a clear round in one of the designated qualifiers held earlier this year. In addition, riders are limited to two horses unless the selectors permit them to compete on an additional horse.

The United States Equestrian Team is a non-profit organization that selects, trains, equips and finances equestrians of the highest possible standard to represent our country in major international competition, including the Olympic Games and the World Championships. To accomplish this, the USET seeks out and nurtures the development of talented athletes - riders, drivers and horses - and provides the support and guidance they need to help them attain their fullest potential.
