Olympic Medalist Lana duPont Wright '57

Based at her Unicorn Farm in Chesapeake City, MD, Lana duPont Wright '57, who has medaled in three different Olympic equestrian disciplines, has been riding all her life.

In 1964 Lana made Olympic history when she was selected as the first woman to ever compete in the Equestrian three-day event at the Olympic Games in Tokyo. While her trip was less than perfect, she says of her ride and her mount, Mr. Wister, “we proved that a woman could get around an Olympic cross country course, and nobody could have said that we looked feminine at the finish.”

Later, Lana decided to focus on combined driving events, and in 1991 was part of the gold medal winning team in the pairs division at the World Championships. Today Lana has again changed her discipline to endurance riding and most recently placed second in the USET Endurance 100 mile Championship aboard Nathan's Pride.

Lana has been able to combine her love of driving, eventing and endurance riding by establishing and helping run the Fair Hill International Weekend, one of the premier competition stops in the U.S.
