Teams from 10 nations and seven combinations competing as individuals from six countries have been confirmed as nominated entries for Pan American Games dressage in Toronto July 10-14 with only a single country able to qualify a team for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2016.

Argentina, Canada, Mexico and the United States have nominated Grand Prix combinations for their teams, a requirement for Olympic qualification while the Dominican Republic and Uruguay have nominated individuals for the Big Tour for the continental championships that will be a unique format of mixed Big and Small Tour combinations.

The number of teams entered for the Pan Am dressage at the Caledon Pan Am Equestrian Park in Palgrave near Toronto July 11-14, according to the lineup confirmed by the International Equestrian Federation (FEI) Wednesday, is two fewer than the 12 teams that competed at the previous Pan Ams in Guadalajara, Mexico in 2011.

The final teams of no more than four and no fewer than three combinations will be named prior to the start of competition.

Toronto will be the 17th Pan Ams that are held once every four years with the first event in Buenos Aires in 1951.

The United States has dominated Pan Am equestrian sports, taking dressage team gold for the past four straight Games and in Guadalajara in 2011 a sweep of all three individual medals that was permitted for the first time.

Mexico won team gold at Buenos Aires in 1995, the last nation other than the United States to win the Nations Cup.
