Weekend Results Roundup: Heart of the Carolinas, MCTA, Poplar Place, Skyline

Badminton may have had the international spotlight this weekend, but the feel-good three-day event of the year was unfolding elsewhere, at Southern 8ths Farm in Chesterfield, South Carolina. The facility hosted the eighth annual Heart of the Carolinas Three-Day Event & Horse Trials, the only event offering riders the chance to contest a USEA recognized traditional long-format event at all four levels of Beginner Novice, Novice, Training and Preliminary.

Join us in issuing a job well done to the event’s hardworking organizers, a big thank-you to sponsors and volunteers, and a hearty congrats to competitors. A great time was had by all at this destination three-day — consider putting Heart of the Carolinas on your event calendar next year!

One shout-out, and then we’ll move on to a roll call of event winners. The honor of lowest finishing score in the country this weekend goes to Conor Rollins and On Target, who scored a 24.8 in Open Novice at Heart of the Carolinas. Way to go, Conor!
