Virginia Horse Trials is well underway so let’s cap off our Friday with a quick look at the leaderboard! With dressage and show jumping in the books, Lauren Kieffer and D.A. Duras have the CCI3*-S lead on their sandbox score of 26.0. David Frechette à la Thehorsepesterer à la the patron saint of American eventing video is live on the scene documenting the action, and he’s uploading ’em as we speak.
One of the first to post was this video of Lauren’s show jumping round:
Just a fraction of a point behind is Phillip Dutton with Fernhill Revelation, who sit second on their dressage score of 26.3.
Meanwhile in the Advanced-Intermediate horse trials division, Daniel Clasing and MW Gangster’s Game have the lead on a 36.1.
Mia Farley and Fernhill Fine Diamond lead Open Intermediate on a score of 26.4. Never stop with the color commentary, David. I’m waiting for the USEF or FEI to hire David to start doing their live stream broadcasts — go right on ahead and make that guy an offer he can’t refuse. It’s for the good of the sport.
Go check out Thehorsepesterer on YouTube for much, much more. And then, Go Eventing!
