All 59 horses were accepted this afternoon at the first inspection for the North American Junior & Young Rider Championships at the Colorado Horse Park in Parker, Colorado.
Fifteen horses presented in the CICY2*, with all accepted after their first pass down the jog strip. Forty-four horses presented in the CH-J* Championship, with three horses sent to the holding box: Ellis Rold’s mount Fernhill Spring Lightly (Area IV), Carson Richards’ mount Fernhill Mr. Cool (Area III), and Ann Pierce’s mount Dignitarian (Area V). All three were accepted after re-presenting.
The action kicks off tomorrow, with CICY2* dressage starting at 9 a.m. MDT. CH-J* dressage is on Friday.
