Equine Canada is the latest to fill out Team Canada for the Toronto 2015 Pan American Games, with 12 names added to the roster.

The Canadian contingent is particularly strong with Olympic experience among the jumpers. Beijing 2008 individual champion Eric Lamaze, along with 10-time Olympian Ian Millar, London 2012 jumper Tiffany Foster, and Yann Candele round out the group.
