It’s a busy day today at the Red Hills International Horse Trials at Elinor Klapp-Phipps Park in Tallahassee, FL. The CIC3* show jumped at 9 a.m. and after a 40-minute delay will head out on cross country starting at about 11:25 a.m. Mike Etherington-Smith has designed a big test for horses and riders this year; you can take a virtual tour of the course here.
We’ll keep you posted with all that action as it happens so keep refreshing this page for updates throughout the CIC3* cross country and then stay tuned for a full report. Catch up on all of EN’s #RHHT17 coverage so far here. Good luck to all the competitors! Go Eventing.
