Brittany Fraser-Beauieu and All In will compete in the Tokyo Olympics Grand Prix Freestyle alongside 17 other riders and horses for individual medals Wednesday.
Brittany and the 16-year-old KWPN gelding will be the first Canadian combination in the Olympic individual final since Ashley Holzer and Pop Art competed at the Beijing Olympics in 2008. Ashley, who now rides for America, has been her coach for several years.
Brittany, 32 years old, and the horse she owns with her husband, Marc, said: “I am so excited to be able to ride my freestyle at the Olympics.
“It’s an amazing recognition to have qualified amongst such an elite group of riders. The new format has made for amazing and intense competition all week and the freestyle will be a great final to determine the individual medalists!”
The pair have been partnered in competition since All In (Tango x Damiro) was a youngster.
The highlight of their senior career so far was on the 2015 Pan American Games silver medal team where the duo competed at Small Tour in the mixed Big Tour-Small Tour championships.
The primary competition center has been the 12 weeks of the Global Dressage Festival in Wellington, Florida, as is the case of most high performance riders throughout the Americas.
Brittany, the mother of a son, Theo, who will be two years old shortly after these Olympics, has also competed in Europe, including the prestigious World Equestrian Festival at Aachen, Germany.
