A Damp Start to Dutta. Corp Tryon International: Scores + Social Updates

We’re underway at the Dutta Corp. Tryon International, which serves as the USEF National 4*-L Championship as well as the USEF Eventing Young Rider Championships, presented by the USEA.

Tropical Storm Nicole has thrown a wet wrench into the scheduling this week, and as a result we’ve seen a big change to the schedule for the remainder of the weekend to allow for heavy weather forecasted on Friday. To view the full schedule update, click here.

Despite the less-than-ideal conditions, the show must go on and four divisions contested their first phase today. Just five of the 18 pairs entered in the 4*-L did their tests today in front of the Ground Jury consisting of president Helen Christie (NZL), Gretchen Butts (USA) and Amanda Miller (USA).

Liz Halliday-Sharp with Ocala Horse Properties’ Deniro Z is the early leader, scoring a 29.0 despite being the first in under very wet, cold conditions and one small mistake in the first flying change. They’re followed closely by Dan Kreitl with Kay Dixon’s Carmango, who delivered a very nice, relaxed test as the final pair in the ring for a 29.2. Sara Kozumplik and Edy Rameika’s Rock Phantom were rewarded for relaxation and consistency to sit third, scoring a 32.4.

Hallie Coon also presented a relaxed Global EX (owned by Helen Coon), though her score of 34.4 seems not to reflect this. Lastly for day one, Jacob Fletcher dealt with a very impressed Fabian (owned by Fletcher Farms), who took great offense to perhaps the Jumbotron or the flags (or the sound they made) above it and had difficulty relaxing into a rhythm, scoring a 42.1.

Watch Liz’s test below:

The remaining divisions leaders after Thursday’s action are:

CCI3*-L: Liz Halliday-Sharp and Emilie Mudd’s Quite Nice 11 (28.5)
CCI2*-L: Boyd Martin and Sherry Pound’s Gestalt (24.1)
CCI1*-L: Liz Halliday-Sharp and Debbie Palmer’s Maybach (22.3)
