Two riders in their 20s and two in their 30s including double gold medalist from four years ago were named by US Equestrian to the United States team for the Pan American Games in Santiago Oct. 22-25.

The team comprises three combinations at Grand Prix level and one at Small Tour:

–Codi Harrison, 27, of Wellington, Florida and Katholt’s Bossco, her 16-year-old Danish Warmblood gelding;

–Anna Marek, 34, of Dunnellon, Florida and Fire Fly, 13-year-old KWPN gelding owned by Janet Simile;

Three of the U.S. team riders–Codi Harrison, Anna Marek and Sarah Tubman–will compete at Grand Prix level, and Christian at Small Tour.

The Games offer two starting places at the 2024 Paris Olympics, but the United States qualified at the World Championships last summer.
