On the eve of the three-star competition here at Rebecca Farm, let’s rewind to last year’s CCI3*, won by Kurt Martin and Delux Z.
Kurt and the 11-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding scored a 47 in the dressage, which put them in third …
… then they rose to second on the wings of a double-clear cross country trip:
Show jumping proved quite the dramatic finale, and when cross country leader Buck Davidson and The Apprentice sent some rails flying the door was open for Kurt to make the big jump into first.
Kurt and Delux Z’s momentum has since carried forward into 2016, when they completed their first four-star attempt at Kentucky, finishing in 25th place.
Best of luck to this week’s Rebecca Farm competitor — be sure to keep up with all the action as it unfolds via the Ride On Video livestream, and of course we’ll be bringing you all the latest right here on EN.
