Farrington, Kraut, Springsteen & Ward named to U.S. show jumping team for Tokyo


LEXINGTON, Ky.--U.S. Equestrian announced the riders and their horses selected to represent the U.S. Jumping Team at the Olympic Games in Tokyo.

Tokyo jumping teamThe team will be led by Chef d’Equipe Robert Ridland and Team Leader Lizzy Chesson.

Competition will begin on Aug. 3 and continue through Aug. 7 at the Equestrian Park venue.

“This weekend’s two simultaneous CSI5* grand prix events in Rotterdam and Windsor completed a long and productive selection process for the Tokyo Olympic Games," said Ridland. "Following a very competitive winter circuit in Florida, American riders competed successfully against the world’s best in five major CSI5* events in Europe over the past couple months. I feel very confident that the seasoned group of riders that we will be sending to Tokyo is in top current form and peaking at just the right time. Backing them up as reserves will be Brian Moggre and Lucy Deslauriers, two of the young stars on the international circuit who made a mark for themselves with their one-two finish in the CSI5* Grand Prix of Sopot. We’re looking forward to the next few weeks ahead and are aiming to deliver a strong performance for Team USA in Tokyo.”

Kent Farrington of Wellington, Fla., on Gazelle, a 15-year-old Belgian Warmblood mare owned by Kent Farrington and Robin Cleary Parsky
