The three-day action has wrapped up at the GMHA Festival of Eventing, and Flatlandsfoto’s Joan Davis was kind enough to once again send us photos of the winners. Show jumping proved to be influential for some competitors, with time penalties and rails cropping up throughout the divisions. As always, though, accuracy was key, and some pairs were rewarded with a late surge to take home the win.

In the Junior Training Three-Day, Cornelia Dorr and Sir Patico MH led from start to finish over Mariah Gallien and Clonmethan Crest, jumping double clear across country and through show jumping to finish on their dressage score.

This pair also won Best Conditioned Novice Horse as well as coming in closest to the optimum time.
