All pairs were accepted in both the CCI4*-L and CCI3*-L at the first horse inspection held this afternoon at the Jersey Fresh International Three-Day Event. Both divisions are serving as selection trials for the U.S. Pan American Games team, so all eyes will be on the action this weekend in Allentown, New Jersey.
The CCI4*-L ground jury of Sue Baxter (GBR), Jo Young (CAN) and Wayne Quarles (USA) sent two horses to the holding box: Caroline Martin’s mount Danger Mouse and Erin Pullen’s mount Tag. Both were accepted upon re-inspection.
The CCI3*-L ground jury of Bobby Stevenson (USA), Valerie Vizcarrando-Pride (USA) and Janice Conlon (USA) sent one horse to the holding box in Heather Jane Morris’ mount Jos UFO De Quidam, who was also accepted upon re-inspection.
A total of 19 horses will start in the CCI4*-L, with 17 in the CCI3*-L. The CCI4*-S, which has 31 starters, and CCI3*-S, which has 57 starters, will start first with dressage tomorrow, followed by dressage for the long format divisions on Friday. Start times for dressage are available at this link.
The schedule is a bit different this year, with the short format divisions holding both show jumping and cross country on Saturday. Sunday will feature show jumping for the long format divisions, as well as the new $2,500 Preliminary Derby presented by East Coast Equine Performance LLC.
