Phillip Dutton

Everyone’s favorite soft-spoken Aussie, Phillip is always a cornerstone member of any international team and will represent Team USA with Z.

Lynn Symansky

Lynn has completed ten CCI4* events all around the world, 8 of which were with her Team USA partner, Donner. Fun fact: Lynn and Donner (fondly dubbed “The Deer”) have been together for ten years, as members of the U.S. team at numerous international events. Bonus fun fact: The leggy Thoroughbred gelding previously raced under the name “Smart Gorky.” 

Alex Hua Tian

Alex and Ballytiglea Vivendi are the sole representatives from China. Fun fact: Alex is the youngest eventer to ever compete at an Olympics as well as being China’s first equestrian Olympian in history (Beijing Olympics 2008).

Ingrid Klimke

Five-time Olympian Ingrid is partnering with SAP Hale Bob OLD to try and help Germany defend their team gold they won in Normandy four years ago. Fun fact: Did you know that Ingrid is the daughter of renowned dressage rider Reiner Klimke? (Of course you did!) Bonus fun fact: She was also a working student for famed Canadian show jumper Ian Millar. 

Gemma Tattersall

Gemma and her experienced Arctic Soul will offer some behind-the-scenes action from Team Great Britain. Fun fact: Gemma says “Spike can be very sweet, but at same time can be extremely grumpy when we try to do his rugs or girth.” She also mentions he’s a bit like a Formula One car to ride (sounds fun to us). 

Blyth Tait

Along with his Kiwi teammate Mark Todd, Blyth is one of the most well-decorated eventers attending WEG this year. Fun Fact: Both Mark and Blyth were on the New Zealand squad at the first ever WEG at Stockholm in 1990, where they won team gold and Blyth also took the individual title.
