Fifty-two competitors are preparing to contest The Spring Event at Woodside Preliminary Challenge in Woodside, California. Featuring $15,000 dollars in prize money for both the horse and rider divisions, it’s an annual destination event for the West Coast set, and this year we all get to follow the action live thanks to Ride On Video.
All three phases will be live streamed on the website, or you can watch via the player embedded below. The first rider of the day, James Alliston, is trailblazing his way up the centerline as we speak.
The competition continues on Saturday, with competitors navigating Ian Stark’s challenging cross country course first thing in the a.m. …
… followed by a show jumping finale late in the day. The top 10 horses in each of the divisions will show jump in reverse order of standing, with the Saturday Evening Gala taking place ringside. The schedule:
