Our proud Olympic history - 1996 Atlanta
The 1996 Olympic Games were held in very hot conditions. The
The 1996 Australian Eventing Team of Wendy Schaeffer (Sunburst), Phillip Dutton (True Blue Girdwood), Andrew Hoy (Darien Powers) and Gillian Rolton (Peppermint Grove) dominated the Three-Day Event. Andrew Hoy (Gershwin), Nikki Bishop (Wishful Thinking) and David Green (Chatsby) rode as individuals.
The team success was not without drama. Wendy was competing despite breaking her leg just nine weeks earlier. She rode with the leg heavily strapped – a screw and plate holding the bones together.
