Lynn Symansky & DonnerU.S. Eventer Lynn Symansky has been selected for the World Equestrian Games with her long-time partner the 15 year old Thoroughbred Donner owned by The Donner Syndicate. Lynn is no stranger to the team having been a member of the gold medal winning team at the 2011 Pan American Games and the 2015 Aachen Nations Cup team. She was the traveling reserve for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games and this world championship will be her second so she is determined to improve on that performance  where they finished down the order after a couple of blips on cross country. In addition to her team performances, Lynn has competed at the Kentucky CCI4* where they finished 6th this spring as well as Badminton, Burghley and Pau. With Donner the Deer, as he is often referred to, Lynn has an experienced partnership and she knows how to get the best of him on any given day. But he has not always been easy and it takes careful nurturing to fine tune the deer. Chris Stafford chatted to Lynn at her home in Virginia in the final countdown to the games.
