We’re bummed for Katherine Coleman and Longwood, who withdrew before the Luhmühlen CCI4* Sunday jog when the horse woke up a bit sore this morning. They’ll fight another day, though, and we couldn’t be happier for them after their terrific cross country run yesterday.
The rest of the U.S. contingent — Hannah Sue Burnett with RF Demeter in the CIC3* and Harbour Pilot in the CCI4*, Will Coleman with Obos O’Reilly, Marilyn Little with RF Scandalous, and Sharon White with Cooley On Show — sailed through the jog and look ready for today’s show jumping finale.
Glamour shots of our crew:
One CCI4* pair, Libby Seed (GBR) and What A Catch II, was held and spun upon re-presentation. Thirty-five CCI4* horses will show jump today, with CIC3* jumping is underway and the CCI4* set to begin at 1:45 p.m. local time (7:45 a.m. EST). Bettina Hoy is presently leading both divisions, but as we all know in eventing it’s never over until the last rail has been cleared, and we anticipate an exciting day of sport ahead.
