North Americans will be out in full force at Tattersalls International Horse Trials and Country Fair in Co. Meath, Ireland, with six American combinations and one Canadian combination slated to compete in the CCI3* May 31-June 4.
Phillip Dutton (USA) has two horses entered in Fernhill Revelation, an 11-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding owned by the Revelation Group, and Z, a 9-year-old Zangersheide gelding owned by Tom Tierney, Simon Roosevelt, Suzanne Lacy, Annie Jones and Caroline Moran.
Z received one of the four Land Rover/USEF eventing competition grants awarded this spring and will look to complete his second career CCI3* with Phillip.
Kim Severson (USA) is entered with Cooley Cross Border, who is re-routing after retiring on course in his four-star debut at Rolex Kentucky. The 10-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding owned by the Cross Syndicate has two top-10 completions at Fair Hill on his record.
Buck Davidson (USA) is entered with Carlevo. The 10-year-old Holsteiner gelding owned by Carlevo LLC jumped clear around Boekelo CCIO3* in 2015.
Amber Levine (USA) will make her overseas debut with her own Carry On, a 10-year-old KWPN gelding. They won the Galway Downs CCI3* last fall and will look to complete their second CCI3* together.
Katherine Coleman (USA) is entered with her own Back to Business II, a 10-year-old Irish Sport Horse mare, in the mare’s CCI3* debut. These two are a very strong cross country combination, averaging clear rounds and just 2.5 time penalties in their three CIC3* runs this season. Katherine is also competing Wizard of Aus and Monte Classico in the CCI2*, with Monbeg Senna in the CCI* Young Horse 6/7-year-old division.
Kathryn Robinson (CAN) is re-routing her own Let It Bee to Tattersalls after an unfortunately fall after The Lake at Badminton when the horse’s feet slipped out from under him in a turn. The 16-year-old Westphalian gelding delivered a personal best score of 44.4 in the dressage at Badminton. Kathryn is also competing Linus V in the CCI* for Canada.
We have one other American rider in the field in MiMi Falb, who is competing Kilpipe Jewel in the CCI*.
The EN team wishes the very best of luck to our American and Canadian riders as they make the trip to Ireland to compete! Go Eventing.
