It's Official - Canadian Team is Announced!!!

Team Canada!

The Canadian Olympic team has been named this evening from Bromont:
Hawley Bennett and Gin N Juice
Rebecca Howard and Riddle Master
Jessica Phoenix and Exponential
Michele Mueller and Amistad
Peter Barry and Kilrodan Abbott
Shandiss Wewiora and Rockfield Grant Juan (Alternates)
The Canadian vets and selectors looked at their horses immediately following the show jumping this evening.  Quickly thereafter they made their picks and informed the riders and other Canadian equestrian personnel.  I was standing next to someone who got called with the team and I couldn’t be happier for everyone involved in the Canadian program.  Congratulations to all of the riders and horses and to all of Canadian eventing!
Official word should come out soon, and the news is already hitting Facebook and Twitter.  Team USA will be selected an announced on Monday.  Go Canada.
