Current Canadian Champion Yann Candele of Caledon, ON, who just claimed the Greenhawk Canadian Cup for the fourth consecutive time, will lead the squad representing the home team. He will be joined by ten-time Olympian ‘Captain Canada’ Ian Millar (Perth, ON), two-time Canadian Champion Ainsley Vince (Burlington, ON), 2008 Beijing team silver medalist Mac Cone (King City, ON), Karen Cudmore (based in Omaha, NB), Angela Covert (St. Lazare, PQ), as well as Jordan MacPherson (Toronto, ON) and Barcelona Olympian Beth Underhill (Schomberg, ON).

The American and foreign riders are always fierce competitors and this year they have sent a mix of seasoned veterans and exciting ‘next generation’ superstars who are rapidly making their ascent up the show jumping ladder.

Hotly anticipated visiting riders include two-time Olympic team gold medalist McLain Ward of Brewster, NY; Olympic team gold medalist Laura Kraut (Wellington, FL); and exciting young talent including Belgium’s Jos Verlooy (18), New York, NY’s Katie Dinan (20), Brianne Goutal (25, Palm Beach, FL) and Belgian twin brothers Nicola and Olivier Philippaerts (25). Kent Farrington (33, Greenwich, CT) returns to defend his 2012 title in the Ricoh Big Ben Challenge.
