So many fabulous jog outfits!
From HN’s sister site, Eventing Nation:
FEI competition officially began yesterday at the highly anticipated Event at Rebecca Farm with the first horse inspection, and we’re pleased to report that all horses were accepted and will proceed on to dressage.
The crisp mountain air here made for some frisky horses, and sure enough there were a few moments of excitement on the jog strip. The wonderful Lisa Takada was on the ground to shoot photos for EN yesterday while I completed the last legs of my travel, but we’ll be bringing you much more from the first full day of competition today.
Here’s what went down on the jog strip: In the CCI*, Ashlynn Meuchel’s mount Tatiana jogged twice and was accepted upon re-inspection. There were no holds or second passes down the jog strip in the CCI2*.
For the CIC3*, two horses were asked to jog twice: Rebecca Buehler’s mount Brighton due to freshness and Anni Grandia’s mount Chaos. Novelle, one of the horses coming off of competing at the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event this spring, was very frisky for Angela Grzywinski, but they managed to keep all six legs on the strip.
In the CCI3*, James Alliston’s horses may have been the freshest there, with Parker being the more amped up of the pair. All of the horses were accepted, and we can’t wait to see them strut their stuff in dressage Friday.
The dressage commences today with the CCI*, while for the lower levels the Novice and Novice Three-Day competitors also will ride their tests. We’re excited for a great weekend here in Kalispell.
Go Eventing! And go Fleeceworks!
