White and Northern Spy, a 15-year-old bay English thoroughbred gelding, will be one of five horse/rider combinations that will compete in eventing, the U.S. Equestrian Federation announced Tuesday.
The pair has enjoyed success in eventing, which consists of dressage, cross-country and show jumping. White and Northern Spy won The Fork CIC***W division at The Fork Horse Trails earlier this year and competed at Rolex Kentucky CCI****.
White, 42, represented the U.S. in the 2006 World Equestrian Games in Germany and was a reserve rider for the 2004 U.S. Olympic team.
Dutton, of West Grove, Pa., will ride Connaught, a 15-year-old Irish gelding that is owned by Aiken's Bruce Duchossois.
Dutton, 44, is a former Olympic gold medalist who has a farm in Aiken where he trains and teaches.
A native of Australia, Dutton became a U.S. citizen in 2006. He has been the leading rider in his sport nine times in the United States.
He also is listed as an alternate with Woodburn, a 13-year-old gelding.
The team leaves this week for England and will ship out to Hong Kong, where the equestrian events will take place, at the end of July.
