The Advanced cross-country has completed at the New Jersey Horse Park HT with victories going to Marilyn Little and Kelly Prather.  Marilyn and RF Demeter soundly defeated the field in Division A, adding just 1.2 time penalties to their dressage score to win by nearly 18 points.

Kelly Prather took home the win in Division B with Blackfoot Mystery in his first try at Advanced level.  Her two time penalties kept her ahead of double clear rounds by Boyd Martin with Pancho Villa and Buck Davidson with Wiley Post.

The course seemed to ride well, with only two riders having jump penalties.  Many competitors took it easy around the course, including WEG Team members Lynn Symansky and Donner (+26.8), Kim Severson and Fernhill Fearless (+8), and alternates Buck Davidson with Park Trader (+21.6), Meghan O’Donoghue and Pirate (+18.4).  Riders are likely looking ahead to save their horses for more important events later this fall, resulting in slower trips around the course.
