Monday Video from Tredstep Ireland: James Alliston and Happenstance, Galway Downs CCI3* XC

Last weekend, James Alliston rode Mary McKee’s Happenstance to a wire-to-wire victory in the CCI3* at Galway Downs. Thanks to Ride On Video you can watch their handy, double-clear cross country run here!

This was Eric Winter’s first time designing on U.S. soil and he did not disappoint! Riders jumped at the chance to ride a course by the same man who designed for Badminton in 2017, and for Blenheim through 2016. The Galway Downs terrain is a neat thing to behold as well — taking riders over soccer fields, winding through brush, and down the home stretch of the racetrack. Looks like fun to me!
