Donna Crookston (Saltsburg, PA) and her own 16-year-old Morgan gelding RG Cowboys Black Cadillac placed second behind Graburn at the National Championship in March. The combination is no stranger to these championships having travelled to Jarantow, Poland to compete as part of the U.S. squad in 2008, in addition to competing as an individual in 2010 in Pratoni del Vivaro, Italy.
Rounding out the American team is Leslie Berndl and Fitz Grupe's Uminco. Berndl (Newcastle, CA) and the 11-year-old KWPN gelding won at the Live Oak CDE this March following a second place finish at the Sunshine State CDE earlier in the year. Berndl was also teammates with Crookston at the 2008 Championships in Poland.
Marie De Ronde will serve as U.S. Chef d' Equipe at the 2012 FEI World Driving Championships for Singles.
The First Vet inspection for the 2012 FEI World Driving Championships for Singles will be held Wednesday at 9am local time. Competition officially gets underway Thursday with the first of two days of dressage.
