Lyle, Orlob and Peters are selected to represent the U.S. Olympic Dressage Team this summer. The traveling reserve was also announced.

 June 25, 2024—US Equestrian announced the four athlete-and-horse combinations selected to represent the U.S. Olympic Dressage Team this summer at the Paris 2024 Games. Dressage competition will begin on July 30 and continue through August 4, at the equestrian grounds of Versailles.

The U.S. Olympic Dressage Team will be led by Chef d’Equipe Christine Traurig alongside Team Leader Laura Roberts, and supported by team veterinarian Laura Faulkner, DVM, team human physiotherapist Jennifer Mitchell and team farrier Chuck Jones.  

“There has been a lot of anticipation around the selection of this team, and I am confident in and proud of each of the combinations we have representing the U.S. at the upcoming Paris 2024 Olympic Games,” Traurig said. “Everyone here in Europe has been working hard for the past six weeks to solidify and build confidence in their partnerships and to produce stronger scores for the U.S. Additionally, we want to be sure our horses are peaking at the right time over the next few weeks. And I know these athletes will give everything they have to make our country proud.”
