USEF Announces Eventing Team for the 2004 Athens Olympic Games
On July 16, the USEF announced the eventing team for the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens. “The riders on the short list from which the team was selected are a very talented group,” said U.S. Eventing Team Coach Mark Phillips. “Those selected for the team are the best of the best, however, they will find the competition in Athens very tough and a big challenge.” The team and the replacement riders shipped to England on July 19 to train with Phillips. The alternate going to Athens will be named on August 9 from the list of replacement riders. On August 10, the team and one alternate will ship to Athens. The eventing competition in Athens takes place August 15-18.

U.S. Takes Second at Super League in Aachen, Germans Grab Win
The reigning Olympic and European champions from Germany claimed the latest leg of the 2004 Samsung Nations Cup series on their home ground in Aachen, sending out a strong signal of confidence and determination ahead of next month’s Olympic Games in Athens.
Aachen has long been considered the Mecca of the show jumping world – the place where every team and every individual wants to do their very best – and course-designer Frank Rothenberger’s track tested them with 12 big fences, light poles and clever layout.

Reining to Be Added to the 2006 World Equestrian Games
Don Treadway, AQHA Executive Director of Marketing, announced that reining will be a full FEI discipline at the 2006 World Equestrian Games (WEG) in Aachen, Germany, which signifies that it will join the six FEI disciplines in terms of expenses and prize money provided by the Organizing Committee. The purse will be the same, or higher, than that offered in Spain at the 2002 WEG.
"Our long term goal is the Olympics, and there is a good chance for our sport in the future," said Treadway. "Even though we have accomplished much in such a short period, it is however imperative that we do have more FEI competitions with more countries competing."
2004 FEI World Reining Masters Series: Fredrik Thomsson Wins CRI in Falsterbo
On July 11, Sweden held its second qualifying CRI competition for the $100,000 FEI World Reining Masters Finals. Among 13 competitors, Fredrik Thomsson not only won this event riding CC Top Whiz with a score of 140, but also placed second, third, and fourth with his other three horses. Altogether, Thomsson won 3300 Swedish krona (around $440 US) in prize money, which put him unofficially in first place in Sweden in the current standings of the FEI World Reining Masters Series – an event which is to take place during the NRHA Futurity & Championship Show in Oklahoma City, OK, on December 2, 2004. Rick Lemay, who did not show in Falsterbo, led previously with 1570 krona ($210 US) and is now ranked second. Waldemar Wass and Peter Ljungberg, are third and fourth, respectively. Since the last Swedish CRI will be held in October, the final placings will not be possible until then.

Jimmy Torano and Aguila Jump to Victory in the $35,000 Grand Prix at the Vermont Summer Festival Horse Show
Jimmy Torano of Fort Lauderdale, FL, bested a blistering pace set by Canada's Harold Chopping to take the blue ribbon in the $35,000 Manchester Summer Festival Grand Prix sponsored by Orvis in East Dorset, VT.
Chopping and his mount, Kathleen, had a speedy time of 33.642 seconds, which seemed insurmountable. Paired with the Dutch Warmblood gelding, Aguila, Torano went last in the deciding jump-off round and turned in a time of 32.697 seconds for the win. Danielle Torano, Jimmy's wife, had the third fastest time in the jump-off on Quinault.
"This was Aguila's first time showing in ten months," explained Torano. "And this was a great way for him to jump back into the ring!" Aguila, a 12 year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding by Libero, underwent surgery for an injured stifle which left him on the sidelines for close to a year. Torano took his time bringing Aguila back to the same level of fitness and performance the horse displayed before his injury.
