The five chosen for Britain's Olympics eventing team are William Fox-Pitt, Sharon Hunt, Mary King, Zara Phillips, and Lucy Wiegersma.

Four years ago Phillips could not attend Athens because her horse Toytown had been injured. Since Athens, they have won gold medals at the 2005 European Championship and the 2006 World Equestrian Games.
