All three remaining U.S. combinations in the Blenheim Palace International CCI3* were accepted this morning at the Final Horse Inspection under thankfully sunny skies, and so will move forward to the show jumping phase this afternoon. Hannah Sue Burnett and Harbour Pilot are of course in second place behind Bettina Hoy and Seigneur Medicott, Holly Payne Caravella and Santino are in 7th place, and Kurt Martin and Delux Z are in 25th place.
Harry Dzenis withdrew Above Board from the holding box. Two other combinations were sent to the holding box: Emily Prangnell and DHI Beaunesse, and Richard Jones and Alfies Clover, but they were both passed upon re-inspection.
The first group are due to jump at 12:15 and the top 30 placed competitors will show jump in the main arena from 3:45pm GB time. I’m headed back out to the cross country now to catch Kylie Lyman and Tamie Smith in the CIC3* and will be back with much more from Blenheim later. Don’t forget to watch the ERM live stream, it’s all GO GO GO Eventing!
