The videos, made available in this country by HorseTV (, recount the USET’s history-making performance at the 2002 World Equestrian Games in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain. U.S. riders, drivers and vaulters won a total of eight medals, doubling the U.S.’s best previous performance.

The USET eventing squad made history at the World Equestrian Games by winning the team Gold Medal and emerging as World Champions for the first time since 1974. Individually, three U.S. riders placed in the top 10 – John Williams (4th), Kim Vinoski (6th) and David O’Connor (10th).
