Becky Holder and Courageous Comet -- Equestrian Olympians

In the past, the equestrian events have not received nearly the attention of other Olympic games (such as track & field and swimming), but they are among the most difficult and dangerous events -- as Olympian Becky Holder is well aware.

Holder, at age 39, will ride her horse, Courageous Comet, in Beijing. Holder hails from Mendota Heights, Minnesota.

The Australian, British, and French teams are favored to win medals in the Equestrian Eventing competition -- but I'm hoping Holder and Courageous Comet pull off a surprise victory for Team USA.
