Three more American horse-and-rider combinations, as well as a reserve, are Tokyo bound.
Adrienne Lyle and Salvino, Steffen Peters and Suppenkasper, and Sabine Schut-Kery and Sanceo all cemented their place on the U.S. dressage team while Nick Wagman and Don John will travel to Tokyo as a reserve pairing, US Equestrian announced Thursday.
Peters, the elder statesman of the group, is set to appear in his fifth Olympics. The 56-year-old has a pair of Olympic bronze medals under his belt (1996, 2016), as well as a quartet of gold medals from the Pan American Games in 2011 and 2015. The 2009 Dressage World Cup winner is a native of Germany, but relocated to the United States in 1992 before making his Olympic debut for Team USA in 1996.
Like Peters, Schut-Kery is also a native of Germany. The 53-year-old was a member of the U.S. team that won gold at the 2015 Pan American Games. Despite her competition experience, Schut-Kery will be making her Olympic debut this summer, as will Wagman.
Lyle, 36, is a former silver medalist at the World Dressage Championships. She competed at the 2012 Olympics in London, but did not make the trip to Rio in 2016.
The United States now has six confirmed horse-and-rider combinations set for Tokyo. Phillip Dutton, Boyd Martin and Liz Halliday-Sharp were named to the U.S. eventing team in May.
