I posted last week about Mclain Ward's inclusion in the Long List. On Friday, the USEF Ad Hoc Committee on Selection approved both Laura Kraut on Cedric and Beezie Madden on Coral Reef Via Volo for the long list, which means they won't have to participate in the trials on these horses.
The Official Long List for the Olympic Trials is as follows:
Cara AnthonyThe trials take place tomorrow, Thursday, and Saturday. Tomorrow is a Speed Class, then Thursday there are two rounds in Nations Cup format at 1pm and 7pm. Saturday at 7pm is a Timed Jump-Off format. I probably won't be able to watch live during the week, but I'm sure they will have the video available later as well. I'll embed them in a later post if I can.

The USEF network will be providing live coverage (presented by SmartPak, my favorite company!) of the trials, beginning tomorrow at 1pm EST. Also, Horse Junkies United will have a simultaneous live chat during the rounds.
Best of luck to this fantastic group of riders!
