Ellen Olson and Bey Gibby Withdraw from 2016 Longines/FEI World Endurance Championships


RELEASE: August 24, 2016
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: USEF Communications Department

Lexington, Ky. – The United States Equestrian Federation has announced that Ellen Olson has withdrawn her and Jeremy Olson’s 2001 Arabian gelding, Bey Gibby, from the 2016 Longines FEI World Endurance Championships due to veterinary concerns. Although, there is not a definite timeline for Bey Gibby’s return to competition, Olson looks forward to competing with the gelding following recovery.

As a result, Olson (La Motte, Iowa) will not substitute a horse for the competition so the following combinations will represent the United States as individuals:

Thomas Hagis (Fries, Va.) and his own Indian Reinman, a 2006 Arabian gelding

Dr. Margaret Sleeper (Frenchtown, N.J.) and her own Shyrocco Rimbaud, a 2006 Anglo Arabian gelding

The USEF International High Performance Programs are generously supported by the USET Foundation, USOC, and USEF Sponsors and Members. Without the support of these organizations and individuals, it would not be possible to support U.S. athletes. The USEF is especially grateful to individuals who give generously of their time and money to support the equestrian teams.
