The selection of these riders was made by the USEF Executive Committee. The selections were based on the riders’ ranking on the March 19, 2004 USET Foundation Computer List.

“We have spent considerable time and resources on qualifying for the 2004 Super League Tour. Our performance in the eight Super League shows is very important because they are excellent preparation for championship competition,” said Sally Ike, USEF Director of Show Jumping. “One of the highlights of the U.S. team’s 2003 season was our performance in Buenos Aires, Argentina where we won the Gold medal in Nations Cup competition. This outstanding victory enabled us to qualify for this year’s Super League Tour. These riders are quite enthusiastic about being named to our first Super League team and are focused on this tour.”

“Knowing we had a shot at the Super League team, Picasso was lightly shown this season,” said Aaron Vale. “Now we have a fresh horse going into these four top shows, and he can help keep us up there in these tough competitions. I’m really excited about going.”

Kim Frey said, “It’s an honor to be on the team. We have a great team and our mission is to make the U.S. a force at the top international level. This is the biggest event I’ve ever been to, so of course I’m thrilled.”.

“This may be an Olympic year but the Super League is a big hitters’ tour,” said Ike. “We worked hard to qualify and we’re going over there with a very promising team.”
