It was a busy, blustering day of cross country at the Dutta Corp. Tryon International in Mill Spring, NC, where nearly all divisions competing this weekend tackled Capt. Mark Phillips’ courses and the leaderboards underwent a few shuffles.

Let’s recap the leaderboard first:

CCI4*-L: Dan Kreitl and Kay Dixon’s Carmango stormed around both of their first 4*-L track clear and just outside the time to move ahead of overnight leaders Liz Halliday-Sharp and Deniro Z. They’ll take a score of 31.2 into tomorrow’s show jumping, where they will not have a rail in hand over second-placed Phillip Dutton and Azure (who wins my nod for 4* ride of the day, what a nippy, athletic mare Phil’s got in this one!).
CCI4*-S: Kentucky-based Cosby Green leapt up from fifth to lead the 4*-S with Highly Suspicious following show jumping today. This division will complete with cross country tomorrow.
CCI3*-L: Canadian World Championships rider Karl Slezak and Hot Bobo moved from fifth into first, remaining on their dressage score of 31.8. Overnight leader in this division Liz Halliday-Sharp withdrew Quite Nice 11 after having a fall from Cooley Nutcracker in the 4*-L.
CCI2*-L: Boyd Martin will keep his lead with Sherry Pound’s Gestalt, remaining on a 24.1 with no penalties added on cross country.
CCIY2*-L: Canada’s Cassandre Leblanc and Riffel moved up from fourth to lead the division thanks to a double clear cross country effort.
CCI1*-L: Liz Halliday-Sharp retains her lead following show jumping on Debbie Palmer’s Maybach.
CCIJ1*-L: Lizzie Hoff and HSH Limited Edition will also keep their lead after show jumping Saturday.

In the Eventing Young Rider Championship competition, the 3* competition flips to see the scramble Area 5/8 team leading the way on a score of 150.4. This team is comprised of Jordan Riske and Redemption Song, Janelle Fleming and Fly Me Courageous, Samantha Tinney and Cutty Sark, and Kit Ferguson and Cillbhrid Tom. In the Y2*-L competition, the mixed team of Areas 2, 4 and 6 move to the lead on a score of 116.3. This team is made up of Meg Pellegrini with Global Naxos, Audrey Ogan and RevitaVet Always Cooley, Sissy Sugarman and Carmani, and Mya Poulos and Cornfire. Finally in the J1*-L, Areas 2 and 7 take the lead on a score of 100.4, but this team has the least amount of wiggle room ahead of tomorrow’s conclusion. The Area 2/7 team is made up of Lizzie Hoff and HSH Limited Edition, Meg Pellegrini and Cassilio G, and Noah Stanlaske and Chesterland.
