OTIS BARBOTIERE

Withdrawn after XC

After having three horses in contention for the US Team, selectors went with the flashy, in form, Otis Barbotiere. Unfortunately, Otis was the first horse to go out throughout the whole competition which led to some questionable dressage judging.

Otis was the trailblazer on a tough, twisty track in Greenwich Park, where he flew around the course, receiving cheers from 50,000 spectators. Unfortunately, the treacherous terrain took its toll on Otis as he came up quite sore after the cross country. He was sent to the hold in the second horse inspection, where I gracefully withdrew, crushing USA’s hopes of a team medal. Team USA finished a disappointing seventh.
