The show jumping team for the WEG

LEXINGTON, Ky.--US Equestrian named five athlete-and-horse combinations to the U.S. Jumping Team for the FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG) in Tryon, which will take place Sept. 11-23, in Mill Spring, N.C.

The show jumping team for the WEG

Staying true to his philosophy of using at least one young rider new to international competition, Chef d'Equipe Robert Ridland elected to use Adrienne Sternlicht on the team.


IT HAD TO be a very difficult decision to use Beezie Madden as the alternate, as her participation as the anchor rider on many of Ridland's teams has been critical to their winning.

On paper, this is a strong team and should be very competitive at the WEG.

After competing in designated Observation Events throughout the summer, the following athlete-and-horse combinations have been selected to represent U.S. jumping at the WEG under the leadership of Chef d'Equipe Ridland, in alphabetical order:

Laura Kraut of Royal Palm Beach, Fla., with Zeremonie, Old Willow Farms LLC's11-year-old Holsteiner mare

Devin Ryan of Long Valley, N.J., with Eddie Blue, LL Show Jumpers LLC's 9-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding

Adrienne Sternlicht of Greenwich, Conn., with Cristalline, Starlight Farms LLC's 9-year-old Bavarian Warmblood mare

McLain Ward of Brewster, N.Y,, with Clinta, the 11-year-old Oldenburg mare he owns with Sagamore Farms, and HH Azur, the 12-year-old Belgian Warmblood mare he owns with Double H Farm

The following combination will serve as the traveling reserve:

Beezie Madden of Cazenovia, N.Y., and Darry Lou, Abigail Wexner's 10-year-old Dutch Warmblood stallion

Show Jumping  will begin competition on Sept.19 and 20 with round one of the team competition.

Round two, the final team competition and medal ceremony will be on Sept. 21.
