 “The level has gotten so much better in the Americas, you could see that in the Nations Cup,” Ward said of the standard of the sport at the 2015 Pan American Games. “The US horses jumped very well but we had a few mistakes – a bit of four-fault-itis – it was one day, one shot, and to be honest if we were to do it again we probably wouldn’t do it any differently. I went to two Olympic Games before I did my first Pan Ams. I went to Guadalajara (2011) and won team gold and finished individually fourth. But the specs have been raised (over the last four years) and there were quite a few top riders who compete in five stars who were here this week.”
