Temecula, Calif. – Galway Downs International was hosted the 2020 Adequan USEF Futures Team Challenge – West Coast this year, marking the first time the program has been held on the West Coast. Part of USEF’s Eventing Pathway Program, the Futures Team Challenges give athletes at the CCI3* and CCI4* levels the experience of competing as part of a team and working with the USEF eventing coaches in an unofficial team competition.

U.S. Performance Director for Eventing Erik Duvander coached his team to a final score of 176.2. With three riders on each team and no drop score, the pressure was on to complete – a feat both teams accomplished.
