53-year-old dressage rider Ashley Holzer will compete under the American flag in the future. Holzer, who attended four Olympic Games for Canada and won team bronze in Seoul in 1988 has decided to change flags. Holzer has been living in the US for more than 25 years, her husband and children as well as the horse owners are American. Therefore the logical conclusion is to compete for the US.
Holzer also represented Canada at the WEG in Stockholm in 1990, Jerez in 2002, Aachen in 2006 and Lexington in 2010. Furthermore she won team gold at the 1991 Pan American Games in Cuba and team silver at the 2003 Pan American Games in Santo Domin
