This list is impressive not only in numbers but also by the fact that it represents five World Champions: Becky Hart having won the title three times and Valerie Kanavy who is a two-time World Champion. Many medalists and top ten finishers from Pan American Endurance Championships are also represented on this list.

All nominees will be observed at each of the Selection Trials by the Selection Committee which is made up of representatives from each of the five US Zones as well two Active Athlete Selectors and the Chef d’Equipe and Team Veterinarian as Ex Officio participants. At each Selection Trial, all nominated horses will be examined by the Team Veterinarians both before and after the ride in order to establish medical base lines for the horses and give the riders advice on management issues.
