Cool breezes and cloud dotted skies greeted competitors this morning at the Galway Downs International Three-Day Event. This group of horses were miraculously well behaved, with most of the antics originating from the Training Three-Day group.

Of the 62 international horses presented, all but one were accepted. All 10 CCI3* and 14 CCI2* combinations were approved by the Ground Jury of Marilyn Payne (USA), Robert Stevenson (USA) and Peter Eck (BUL). They begin dressage tomorrow morning starting at 8:20 a.m.

In the CCI*, 37 were passed. Stephanie Nicora’s High In The Air was held and sadly not accepted when represented. 29 Training Three-Day riders have begun the dressage phase of competition after all were accepted this morning. Their endurance day begins tomorrow at 2 p.m.
