Wilton to make dressage debut in Rio

Spencer Wilton and horse Super Nova II will make their Olympic debuts at Rio 2016 after a six-year riding relationship.
Along the way they have had to overcome several injuries, including one that almost forced Super Nova II to retire.
"Probably quite a bit of our relationship has been putting him back together," said Wilton.
"I had a few days of feeling really elated after selection, and then the reality of keeping him in one piece up until Rio has been more stressful than being selected."
