Equestrian: Team USA
The U.S. equestrian team is set in all three disciplines - dressage, eventing and show jumping.
Beezie Madden and McLain Ward return to the show jumping team looking for their third-straight Olympic gold medals in the team event. They will be joined by youngster Reed Kessler and World Cup champion Rich Fellers.
The U.S. dressage team will consist of Steffen Peters, Tina Konyot and Jan Ebeling. American Adrienne Lyle will compete at the Olympics as an individual rider and her score will not count toward the team score. Peters is considered a gold medal contender. Ebeling has drawn media attention recently due to one of his horses owners, Ann Romney, wife of politician Mitt Romney.
The three-day event team will consist of Boyd Martin, Karen O'Connor, Phillip Dutton, Tiana Coudray and Will Coleman. This is the fifth Olympics each for Dutton and O'Connor.
