Under the watchful eye of her Olympic bronze-medal winning father, Olivia Dutton made the step up to the Intermediate level at Carolina International last weekend. Her mount? None other than the reigning USEF National CCI4* Champion, Mr. Medicott.
The 19-year-old Irish Sport Horse, owned by the Mr. Medicott Syndicate, still has plenty left in the tank following his fourth place finish with Phillip at Kentucky last year, and has been happily showing Olivia around the upper-levels since she took over the ride last summer.
Olivia carefully piloted a very keen “Cave” around the Intermediate Rider division, adding just cross country time onto their dressage score and finishing 9th in a large contingent. Check out their cross country round courtesy of RNSvideomedia!
