Eventer Jordàn Linstedt of Redmond and RevitaVet Capato have been selected for the prestigious 2013 United States Equestrian Federation Developing Rider Program.

As one of 17 rider and mount pairs chosen, Linstedt will head to California next month to train with U.S. Eventing Team Chef d’Equipe and U.S. Eventing Team bronze medalist from the 2000 Olympic Games, David O’Connor.

Linstedt's lifelong dream of representing Team USA in the Olympic Games comes one step closer as developing rider pairs are trained in hopes of sending them to future international Team USA competitions including the 2014 World Equestrian Games, the 2015 Pan American Games and the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
