Twenty-nine Galway Downs competitors immersed themselves into the origins of our sport Friday as they took on Endurance Day as part of the Training Three-Day competition. It was the full gauntlet: roads & tracks, steeplechase and finally cross country.
Many took on the challenge with ease including overnight leaders Jordan Linstedt and Janine Jaro’s Staccato. They added nothing to their dressage score to remain on a score of 27.1 before Saturday’s show jumping.
Education and fun intersect at a long format event, and I was very impressed with the riding throughout the afternoon. We’ve rounded up a select few riders on Phase D, and we want to know Who Jumped It Best? Cast your vote for which horse and rider present the best overall picture.
These riders warp up their weekend over the colored poles tomorrow in reverse order of standing at 3:45 p.m. PST/6:45 p.m. EST, and you can watch live at this link.
