US Equestrian Team Wins Silver in Dressage Team Grand Prix Special
The U.S. equestrian team took home silver in the dressage team grand prix special.
The team of Adrienne Lyle, Steffen Peters and Sabine Schut-Kery totaled 7,747 points. Germany won gold with 8,178 points and Great Britain won bronze with 7,723 points.
With the medal, Peters becomes the oldest U.S. Olympic medalist since 1952 at the age of 56 years old. It's his third medal in his career, as he also won the bronze in 1996 and 2016 with the United States. It is the first medal for Schut-Kery and Lyle.
Lyle, riding her horse Saldino, scored 2,504.0 points in the first run for the United States. Peters followed with his horse Suppenkasper, who scored a 2,558.5.
Ending the attempts for the Americans with Schut-Kery on her horse, Sanceo, as she posted a score of 2,684.5. It was the third-highest individual score of the grand prix.
The total is tied for Team USA's best Olympic result in the event. The U.S. also earned silver in 1948.
Born in Wesel, Germany, Steffen Peters came to the United States in 1984 to work for trainer Laurie Falvo in San Diego. Southern California was a good fit for Peters, and he made the decision to stay, and became a U.S. citizen in 1992. He has been one of the country’s top international dressage competitors ever since, having represented the U.S. at four Olympic Games, four FEI World Equestrian Games, and two Pan American games.
Peters rode his KWPN gelding, Udon, to team bronze in his first Olympic outing in 1996. With Legolas 92, he won team and individual gold at the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto and team bronze at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics. With his longtime mount, Ravel, the KWPN gelding owned by Akiko Yamazaki, he won the FEI World Cup in 2009 and individual bronze at the 2010 WEG in Lexington. He has been recognized for his accomplishments with three USEF Equestrian of the Year titles, in 2008, 2009, and 2011.
Peters has built a phenomenal record with his current top horse, Suppenkasper, a KWPN gelding owned by Akiko Yamazaki and Four Winds Farm. They were undefeated in 2020 through the Adequan Global Dressage Festival in Wellington, Fla., and the CDI3* at Desert Dressage in Thermal, Calif. The pair kicked off 2021 in the same winning fashion, winning the FEI Grand Prix and Grand Prix Special CDI4* at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival (AGDF) week 3 and the FEI Grand Prix and Grand Prix Freestyle CDI5* at AGDF 7. Peters and Suppenkasper collected personal best scores of 77.696% in the FEI Grand Prix 79.532% in the FEI Grand Prix Special at the U.S. Dressage Mandatory Observation Event.

The U.S. Dressage Team has won silver at the 2020 Olympic Games, in Tokyo, Japan. This is the first time the United States team has collected a team silver in dressage since the 1948 London Olympic Games.
The team competition saw eight nations vie for the three coveted podium positions in the Grand Prix Special, with Germany taking gold, the U.S. earning the silver, and Great Britain awarded the bronze medal.
Adrienne Lyle and Salvino received a 76.109% from the panel, while Steffen Peters and Suppenkasper, finished the competition with a 77.766%, a personal best for the combination. Sabine Schut-Kery and Sanceo anchored the team and received a career-high 81.596% from the judges as one of the final rides of the evening.
Lyle (Wellington, Florida) and Salvino, a 14-year-old Hanoverian stallion owned by Betsy Juliano LLC, executed a mistake-free test, giving momentum to the team for their second ride with Peters and Suppenkasper.
“I’m super thrilled,” Lyle said. “I was really hoping we could pull off a score like that for the team today. We were a little conservative in the Grand Prix, and it wasn’t our greatest display, so I wanted to come out here and push for a little bit more. Despite the heat and humidity, he was really a good boy and he delivered with no mistakes, and that’s what you want for the team test.”
In the second grouping of combinations, Peters (San Diego, California) and Suppenkasper, a 13-year-old Dutch Warmblood (KWPN) gelding owned by Akiko Yamazaki and Four Winds Farm, rode one of their best tests to date and earned a superb score, improving from their test on Sunday in the team qualifier competition.
“This is exactly what I wanted for my team,” Peters said. “It’s one thing to ride individually, but when you pull a good score for your team it’s an incredible feeling. When we came out of the arena, I gave Mopsie a big hug and thanked him from the bottom of my heart. We were seriously in the zone. When we were out there about to go in the ring, I said, ‘Mopsie, please just do what we just did out here in warm-up,’ and we had a good schooling this morning. He did that for me when it counted and it’s an incredible feeling when a horse will fight for you like that in the arena.”
As the anchor combination for the team, Schut-Kery (Napa, California) and Sanceo, a 15-year-old Hanoverian stallion owned by Alice Womble, rounded out the team’s effort with another stellar performance and personal best. The duo, who made their presence known in their first outing on Saturday, returned with another strong performance for the U.S. Dressage Team, helping them clinch their second-place finish.
“For me, this was my first time here at the Olympics, and it was quite intense to wait that long for the end of the class, but I am so proud of my horse, my team, my owners, and the coaches,” said Schut-Kery. “It’s been a really, really great experience and I am still a bit speechless. I was filled with joy and pride. It’s such a team effort. It’s a big relief to deliver for the whole team, not just my teammates, but everyone involved, and it just meant everything. It was just pure happiness.”
With team rides concluded, U.S. Chef d’Equipe Debbie McDonald was overcome with emotion.
“I am just so proud of this team,” she said. “This is truly the dream team. They each persevered and delivered when their team needed them most. I am so elated by their accomplishment tonight, and wow, what a moment to be remembered for this program. We’ll be back tomorrow and ready for our last competition of this journey, which I am so proud to be a part of, and I have to thank all of the amazing coaches, support staff, and owners, as this wouldn’t have been possible without their dedication and unwavering commitment to our athletes and their horses.”
The second horse inspection will take place at 10:30 a.m. JST/9:30 p.m. EDT, and the FEI Grand Prix Freestyle for Individual Medals will begin at 5:30 p.m. JST/4:30 a.m. EDT on Wednesday, July 28. The order-of-go will be announced tomorrow morning. Official results can be found here.

In our family, everything is fine, the girls grow up, study, and during Alla's periods they help out me. They still won't get themselves boyfriends until they like no one. And now I'm just in paradise - everything from the caresses of my beautiful wife and the help of our daughters. And then there's the news - Namik went bankrupt and now they are with my ex, as they say - from bread to kvass.
Of course, my ex could not resist and flew like a fury, somehow into our store, groaned, yelled at our saleswomen-daughters, and, glittering viciously with.
