Clayton Fredericks will be the next coach of the Canadian eventing team.
The Australian event rider takes over from David O’Connor — who moves on to coach the US team — in January 2013.
Clayton recently moved to a new training centre in Ocala, Florida.
Canadian chef d’equipe Graeme Thom said: “We are all very excited that Clayton has accepted the position and cannot wait to get underway in 2013.
“His background and personality will be a great fit with our riders.”
