The three squads of riders who will represent Team GB in the equestrian competitions at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games have been announced by the British Olympic Association (BOA).

The dressage team includes Carl Hester, who is set to compete in his seventh Games, Charlotte Dujardin, who is hoping to become Britain’s most decorated female Olympian, Charlotte Fry, who will be looking to build on her Tokyo experience and is reigning World Champion, and Becky Moody, who is making her Games debut.

Team GB’s eventing team includes Laura Collett and Tom McEwen, who also competed at Tokyo 2020, Ros Canter, who was the travelling reserve for the last Olympics, and World Champion, Yasmin Ingham.

Paris will be a fifth Olympic Games for current Olympic individual jumping champion, Ben Maher, and he is joined by Tokyo 2020 Olympians Scott Brash and Harry Charles. Debutant of the group is Joe Stockdale.

“A huge congratulations to all the athletes, grooms, and horse owners named today as we select the three squads of equestrian riders that will travel to Paris to compete for Team GB,” said Team GB Chef de Mission, Mark England.

“There is an incredible wealth of experience across all three disciplines, with some athletes set to compete at their fourth, fifth and seventh Olympic Games this summer, which will undoubtedly stand them in good stead in Paris. I look forward to watching them compete at the historic Palace of Versailles in a months’ time.”

Helen Nicholls, Equestrian Team Leader said she was “exceptionally proud” of the 12 athlete combinations and their connections.

“We have an exciting balance of experience, talent and potential, and we head to the Games in a strong position, and with medal ambitions,” she said. “The hours of preparation, enormous sacrifice and total dedication will now be put to the ultimate test. The teams behind the athletes – both equine and human – have left no stone unturned in their quest to support them to their very best performances.

“The Olympic Games give us the opportunity to showcase our amazing sports and the unique bond between horse and rider to a new legion of supporters as well as give the equestrian community the chance to be part of Team GB and their family of sports. Here’s to making lifelong memories, achieving dreams and hopefully medal celebrations.”
