USET and USA Equestrian Announce Changes to 2002 World Equestrian Games Show Jumping Team Selection Procedures

Gladstone, NJ—July 12, 2002—The United States Equestrian Team (USET) and USA Equestrian (USAE) have approved two procedural changes to the Show Jumping Selection Procedures for the 2002 World Equestrian Games, which will be held in Jerez, Spain this September.

The organizations announced that the Jumping Order for Selection Trial #5 will be in the inverse order of standing after Selection Trial #4. The start order for Selection Trial #6 will be in inverse order of faults from Selection Trial #5.

The organizations have also announced stricter security between Selection Trials at Del Mar and San Juan Capistrano. The horses will be under continuous security watch beginning 48 hours prior to Selection Trial #1 at Del Mar and lasting until the conclusion of Selection Trial #6 at CSI-A San Juan Capistrano, on Sunday, July 28, 2002, unless the horse withdraws from the Trials prior to that time.

“We are pleased with these modifications to the WEG Selection Procedures,” said the USET Director of Show Jumping, Sally Ike. “The goal is to have riders and owners fully aware of every detail of how the selection procedure will run prior to the start of the first trial,” she added.
