Two Champions + One Prize = Plantation Field Bareback Puissance Smackdown!

Caroline Martin and Quantum Solace cleared the massive wall at Plantation Field last year to win the 2012 Bareback Puissance title, and earlier this summer they added North American Young Rider Champions to their impressive list of achievements. I caught up with both Caroline and the winner of the previous year’s Bareback Puissance at Plantation, Jennie Brannigan, to find out their plans for the event this year, and of course to hear about their other horses and any eventing they might be thinking of fitting in too!

Meanwhile, just a few miles down the road from Buck’s place in Pennsylvania, Jennie Brannigan has hatched a cunning plan to bring the Plantation Field Bareback Puissance Trophy back home to True Prospect Farm by merging her worlds of Olympic eventing, show jumping and Thoroughbred racing. I caught up with her after walking the Richland cross country to explain more.

Willie McCarthy recently rode I Bella for the first time, and Jennie shared this video with us:

Who’s your money on, EN? The BJD team, TPF, or will an outsider swoop in and upset the odds? Dom Schramm gave Caroline a good run for her money last year — perhaps he has something up his sleeve? All tips gladly welcomed, and we look forward to a very exciting and entertaining competition. Go Richland, Plantation and sharing the love across all the disciplines! Go Eventing!
