Hello from an overcast Mother’s Day morning at the Jersey Fresh International Three-Day Event in Allentown, New Jersey. All horses in both CCI divisions were accepted in the final inspection, sending 19 combinations on to show jumping in the CCI3* and 17 combinations forward in the CCI2*.
Two horses were sent to the holding box in the CIC3* division: Matt Flynn’s mount Get Lucky and Chris Talley’s mount Sandro’s Star. Sandro’s Star was accepted after re-presenting from the holding box, while Get Lucky was not accepted.
Two horses were sent to the holding box in the CIC2*: Jan Byyny’s mount Volcan de Caverie and Holly Payne Caravella’s mount Bruisyard Hall. Both horses were accepted after being re-presented from the holding box. Ashley Kehoe’s mount Cinco de Mayo was not accepted following the first pass down the jog strip. Will Coleman did not present Boris O’Hara in the CIC2*.
All other horses that presented in the CIC divisions were accepted, giving us 52 pairs to tackle Chris Barnard’s show jumping course in the CIC2* and 30 pairs to jump in the CIC3*.
Show jumping is underway now with the CIC2* division, followed by the CIC3* at 11:30 a.m. EST, CCI3* at 1:30 p.m. EST, and CCI2* at 3 p.m. EST.
