The United States Federation’s International Discipline Council has approved the recommendation of Silvio Mazzoni as the Eventing Show Jumping Coach for the Land Rover U.S. Eventing Team. Mazzoni will now begin working to evaluate and improve the show jumping skills of training-listed riders and the Land Rover U.S. Eventing Team. Following the 2014 Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event presented by Land Rover, Mazzoni, USEF Eventing Team Coach David O’Connor, and the eventing committees will evaluate the progress to ensure it is in line with the goals of the program.
Mazzoni (Reddick, Fla.) has great depth of knowledge in both eventing and jumping having participated in both disciplines as a competitor and trainer. Originally from Argentina, he was a member of the Argentinian eventing team at the 1998 FEI World Equestrian Games in Rome, Italy. Mazzoni also has a wealth of experience in the jumping discipline where he has earned top finishes in multiple Grand Prix competitions as well as operating a successful training and sales business.
