Friend of EN, The Horse Pesterer, is at Poplar Place this weekend, and he’s posted a few videos from the Open Intermediate division. Andrew Palmer and Tatendrang are the current leaders after dressage and show jumping, earning a 31.9 in the first phase and remaining on that score going into today’s cross country.
Shanon Baker and Ballingowan Zeal are currently in second place after dressage and show jumping, also on their dressage score of 34.8. Shanon has brought this Irish Sport Horse gelding up through the levels, and this weekend marks their first Intermediate start together. They’re coming off of an 11th place finish in the CCI* at Hagyard Midsouth last month.
