Badminton 2011 | Return Of The O'Connors

David & Karen O'Connor
Karen & David O'Connor are synonymous with eventing in the US, and their talents, expertise and experience is highly sort after. Both have previously competed at Badminton and their riding record on the world stage is amongst the best the sport has ever known.

Whilst Karen still competes at 4 star and championship level, David has been coaching the Canadian Eventing team, with  recent success and a silver medal in last year's World Equestrian Games in Kentucky.
