INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ Mike Huber won the individual gold medal and led the United States to the team title Tuesday in the three day event equestrian competition at the Pan American Games.
The United States swept the first three places in the individual standings, but took only the gold and silver medals under Pan Am rules.
Huber and his horse, Quarterhorse, won when silver medalist Emily MacGowan, the leader after Monday’s competition, failed to get the required perfect score in the final jump. Packy McGaughan of the United States was third, but the fourth-place finisher, Peter Gray of Bermuda, received the bronze medal.
The United States won the team gold with 143.3 penalty points. Canada won the silver with 201, while Chile took the bronze at 317.8.
