Ride around Tremaine Cooper’s Millbrook Advanced cross country course with Doug Payne and Lisa Wall’s Getaway in this helmet cam courtesy of Cambox. “Flynn,” an 11-year-old Oldenburg by Contendro, added 1.2 time penalties to his dressage score to complete on 26.6 and finish second.
Only three pairs caught the time, and Doug and Flynn finished 5 seconds over the optimum time of 6 minutes, 21 seconds — 2 seconds faster and they would have won. Check out their super inside line at the water complex at the 5:15 marker in the video. Doug was the only rider to attempt it in the Advanced division and nailed it.
Doug and Flynn received a Jacqueline B. Mars International Competition Grant from the USET Foundation to compete at Boekelo CCIO3* in October and used Millbrook as a prep run. We wish them all the best as they gear up for the trip to the Netherlands. Go Eventing.
