Peter Wylde Honored With Whitney Stone Cup

Gladstone, NJ—April 10, 2003-- The United States Equestrian Team (USET) has honored show jumping rider Peter Wylde as the 2003 recipient of the Whitney Stone Cup.

Each year, since 1980, the USET has recognized an individual who has achieved a distinguished record in international competition while also serving as an ambassador for the USET and equestrian sports by presenting them with the Whitney Stone Cup.

Wylde’s international show jumping successes are highlighted by the individual Bronze Medal in the Show Jumping World Championships at the 2002 World Equestrian Games (WEG), in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain. His medal was the first by a U.S. show jumping rider at the World Championships since Conrad Homfeld’s individual Silver in 1986. Also at the World Equestrian Games, Wylde’s horse Fein Cera was named Best Horse of the Games, the first U.S. horse to achieve that since Gem Twist in 1990.

Wylde also won individual and team Silver Medals at the 1999 Pan American Games in Winnipeg, Canada.

Wylde represented the USET at the World Cup Finals in Gothenburg, Sweden in 1997, 1999 and 2001. That last year, he tied for sixth place overall.

In 1999, Wylde was Co-Champion of the $100,000 Rolex/USET Show Jumping Championship at the Bayer/USET Festival of Champions just before earning his team and individual Silver Medals at the Pan American Games. In additional to several U.S. Grand Prix wins, he also won the Van Vlanderen Grand Prix in Belgium in December 2000.

The United States Equestrian Team is a non-profit organization that selects, trains, equips and finances equestrians of the highest possible standard to represent our country in major international competition, including the Olympic Games and the World Championships. To accomplish this, the USET seeks out and nurtures the development of talented athletes - riders, drivers and horses - and provides the support and guidance they need to help them attain their fullest potential.
