Sixty-five horses in all will go on to show jumping at the The Dutta Corporation Fair Hill International following this morning’s final horse inspection in Elkton, Maryland.
The CCI2* horses presented to the ground jury first, with just one horse, Rebecca Hoos’ mount Little Cruz, sent to the holding box. Little Cruz was accepted upon re-presentation. McKena Knott withdrew Flanigan prior to presenting. All other horses were accepted, sending 34 pairs forward to two-star show jumping.
The CCI3* horses presented next, with 31 horses moving to show jumping. It’s a heartbreaking end to Booli Selmayr’s CCI3* debut with Jaeda, who was so impressive yesterday with a clear cross country round and just 2.8 time penalties. Booli withdrew the mare from the holding box. All other horses were accepted.
CCI2* show jumping starts at 10:30 a.m. EST, with CCI3* show jumping at 1:30 p.m. EST. Keep it locked on EN as we count down to the finale at #DuttaFHI. Click here to catch up with all of EN’s coverage so far.
