Fourteen riders are contesting the CCI2*-S this weekend at GMHA Festival of Eventing, sponsored by Goss Dodge and Lake Champlain Transportation, in Woodstock, Vermont. There’s plenty of reward up for grabs, with $10,000 in prize money being awarded between the CCI2*-S and Intermediate divisions.

The event kicked off with dressage on Friday. Shanon Baker and Landsdowne lead the CCI2*-S on a score of 28.3, followed by Zoe Crawford with Francelia in 2nd on 31.1 and Katie Ruppel and Hannibal in 3rd on 33.1. Buck Davidson and Copper Beach are out front in the Intermediate on 27.7, and Anna Loschiavo holds the 2nd and 3rd place spots with Spartacus Q (28.0) and Prince Renan (28.6) respectively.

The competition continues with show jumping today, and riders will head to the cross country start box on Sunday to tackle Tremaine Cooper’s challenging cross country course. In this video, he describes some of the questions on this year’s track.
