Canada At The Games: How Many Medals Will Canada's Equestrian Team Win?


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.
