Australia has revealed the showjumping team who will be carrying Aussie hopes at the 2010 World Equestrian Games in Kentucky.

Leading the squad is Edwina Alexander with her 15.2hh 14-year-old gelding Itot Du Chateau. Edwina Alexander is currently 10th in the Rolex World Rankings and won at Cannes CSI4* and Vigo CSI-W earlier this season. Edwina finished fourth at the 2006 World Equestrian Games and will be hoping for individual glory this time.

Joining her are Chris Chugg and Vivant, who have enjoyed a good run of form on the European circuit including seventh at the 2010 World Cup final. This combination was also part of the second placed Nation Cup team at Lummen and Linz.

Holland-based James Patterson-Robinson and Niack De L’Abbaye take the third slot. James competed in the Athens Olympics as an individual and the pair were recently third in the 1.60m CSI 5* in San Patrigno.

The final combination is Matt Williams, who is based with Edwina Alexander in Holland. He will be riding Urleven Van De Helle.
