We have two Americans contesting Bramham this week: Lauren Kieffer with D.A. Duras in the CCI3*, and Caroline Martin with Pebbly Maximus and The Apprentice in the Under 25 CCI3*. The first horse inspection took place this afternoon and the U.S. trio passed with flying colors.

Lauren Kieffer’s ride D.A. Duras, a 9-year-old Dutch gelding owned by Debbie Adams and Ms. Jacqueline Mars, is a super talent, and they’ll be looking for invaluable European mileage this weekend. Most recently the pair won the CIC2* at Jersey Fresh, and they’ve had a couple top-10 finishes at the three-star level in the States.

Caroline Martin has two entries in the Under 25 CCI3* division: Pebbly Maximus, a 14-year-old Irish Sport Horse owned by Sherrie and Caroline Martin, and The Apprentice, a 13-year-old Irish Sport Horse owned by Sherrie Martin. Caroline rode both horses in the CICO3* at Houghton Hall at the end of May, finishing 15th and 17th respectively, and we can’t wait to watch her tackle Ian Stark’s cross country track on Saturday.
