The weekend is coming to a close at Poplar Place’s March Horse Trials.  Canada continued to dominate, taking home the top three places in the CIC3*.   Jessica Phoenix and Kyle Carter enjoyed a very successful event, and I’m sure they’ll be bubble-wrapping their horses on the way home as they both look forward to Rolex in a month.  Congratulations as well to Kelly Prather, who finished three horses in the top four of the Open Intermediate division.

As predicted, the CIC3* course proved to be tough.  Most riders rode conservatively and amassed quite a few time penalties.  There were only 7 clear rounds in the CIC3*, with 3 other starters having a stop, and 4 riders retiring on course.
