Canada's Equestrian team will be looking to improve on its Beijing performance this summer.

It's not going to be easy. The team took home a silver in team showjumping and rider Eric Lamaze took home a gold in the individual attempt. The two-medal result was the team's best ever at an Olympics.

Lamaze, at age 44, will be one of the country's oldest Olympians and he'll have a unique challenge in London. Hickstead, the horse that Lamaze rode in Beijing died in late 2011 and Lamaze will be forced to defend his Olympic gold medal with a new horse.
