The U.S. dressage team for the London Olympics was nominated this past weekend by the U.S. Equestrian Federation.

The team was ranked based on the results of the selection trials and grand prix national championships.

Steffen Peters was ranked first with Four Winds Farm's Legolas 92 and third with Ravel.

Tina Konyot and her Calecto V were second.

Fourth was Jane Ebeling with Rafalca, owned by Ann Romney, wife of presidential candidate Mitt Romney, Beth Meyers and Amy Ebeling.

Ranked fifth through 13th were: 5. Adrienne Lyle and Peggy Thomas' Wizard; 6. Todd Flettrich and Cherry Knoll Farm's Otto; 7. Heather Blitz and her Paragon; 8. Guenter Seidel and Toyon Farm's Fandango; 9. Pierre St. Jacques and his Lucky Tiger; 10. Kathleen Raine and Jennifer Mason and David Wightman's Breanna; 11. Shawna Harding and her Come On III; 12. Susan Blinks and the Minnesota Group's Robin Hood; 13. Jim Koford on Shirley McQuillan's Rhett

In the 2012 Olympic format, each nation's team comprises three rider/horse and each rider can only ride one horse. Peters' Ravel was granted permission to not contest the trials and was therefore ranked third. The U.S. will also have one Individual rider to compete at the Games.
