The U.S. equestrian federation has named the riders that will represent the U.S.A. at the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris.

A group of eight short listed riders competed in Europe at the CDI's in Hagen, Rotterdam and Kronberg to collect scores for team consideration.

The U.S. Olympic Dressage Team will be led by Chef d’Equipe Christine Traurig alongside Team Leader Laura Roberts, and supported by team veterinarian Dr. Laura Faulkner, team human physiotherapist Jennifer Mitchell, and team farrier Chuck Jones.

“There has been a lot of anticipation around the selection of this team, and I am confident in and proud of each of the combinations we have representing the U.S. at the upcoming Paris 2024 Olympic Games," said Chef d'Equipe Christine Traurig. "Everyone has been hard at work here in Europe for the past six weeks, working to solidify and build confidence in their partnerships and producing stronger scores for the U.S. We want to be sure our horses are peaking at the right time over the next few weeks, and I know these athletes will give everything they have to make our country proud.”
