Bonner Carpenter and Basco held their overnight lead to clinch the win in the Intermediate division here at the AECs. The course was a tough one, with plenty of rails scattered about and fence 2 appearing to the bogey fence. Bonner held it together and jumped a beautiful double clear round to seal the deal.
Michael and Hanni positively floated around course for another double clear round to remain in 2nd place. Hanni’s first season back after her injury last May has been quite a successful one, and we look forward to seeing her get back to the Advanced level.
Frankie Theriot had a lovely round on the exuberant Uphoria, moving up to take 3rd place after going clear with just 1 time fault. Frankie may have had the largest cheering section thus far today!
Julie had a heartbreaking rail down at the last after an otherwise beautiful round on Buenos Aires. She takes 4th place on the weekend.
Sydney Elliot and her gorgeous Dutch Warmblood gelding only had a single rail down to round out the top 5.
We are currently on a rail delay before Advanced show jumping gets underway. It appears that Stormaggedon is approaching so they have delayed the start until the weather clears up a bit.
