It’s been a massively busy day at the Carolina Horse Park, with Advanced dressage running amidst CIC3*/CIC2* show jumping and CIC* cross country. Kim Severson and Cooley Cross Border ultimately prevailed in the sandbox, scoring 27.1 to just edge Lauren Kieffer and Veronica for the lead.
In a special edition of today’s Friday Video presented by World Equestrian Brands, we have footage of Kim and Cooley Cross Border’s test courtesy of our friendly neighborhood videographer David Frechette.
Many pairs in this division are gearing up for a spring CCI4*, with Cooley Cross Border aiming for his four-star debut at the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event. Lauren Kieffer and Veronica, who scored 27.2 for second place, are aiming for their first appearance at the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials.
Lillian Heard and Share Option — another Rolex-bound pair — sit in third place on 29.1, with Will Coleman and Boris O’Hara in fourth on 31.5. Kristin Schmolze and Ballylaffin Bracken sit tied for fifth place with Courtney Cooper and Who’s A Star on 32.2. Click here for more dressage videos.
