Canada's Olympic Long Lists for Dressage, Eventing & Showjumping

Today marks 45 days to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, where equestrian sport will celebrate 104 years in the Olympic Movement. A total of 200 human/equine athlete combinations will compete at the Olympic Equestrian Centre in the Deodoro Olympic Park, the second largest Rio 2016 Games cluster - 75 in Jumping, 65 in Eventing and 60 in Dressage.

The equestrian action gets underway with the Eventing horse inspection on 5 August, the day of the Olympic Opening Ceremony, after which the world’s best horses and riders will compete for six sets of medals over 12 days of intense competition.

The FEI has today published the long lists (FEI nominated entries) of athletes and horses for the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Many of the 43 nations that have earned their Rio 2016 Olympic Games slots are still focusing on making their final selection of teams and individual athletes from these nominated entries, and these will be submitted by the National Olympic Committees to the Rio 2016 Organising Committee by the deadline of 18 July.
The full nominated entries are available here:
Rio 2016 Olympic Games – Jumping
Rio 2016 Olympic Games – Dressage
Rio 2016 Olympic Games – Eventing
Rio 2016 Paralympic Games

Who is on the list from Canada?

 While mystery still surrounds how Canada will be choosing members of the Canadian Equestrian Team, at least now we have some clues as those members must come from the published Nominated Entries list. 

Thank goodness the FEI is providing some information, otherwise we wouldn't even officially know who to cheer for!
