Colleen Loach and Qorry Blue D’Argouges, the horse she will be riding, are currently in Germany, partway through a ten-day quarantine together with other equestrian competitors before heading to Tokyo for the Olympics next week.
“It’s going to be unlike other games in the past,” Loach said, speculating that outside of competition and practice times, she will likely just hunker down in her hotel room for the duration of her time in Japan. This will be her second time competing in the Olympics, after having gone to Rio de Janeiro in 2016.
