You guys in your back-to-school sweater vests and woolen scarves and smart leather jackets, I can’t even deal. Autumn is upon us — and all over eventing’s runway, including the jog strip at Hagyard Midsouth Three-day Event & Team Challenge H.T.
Taking place this week at the Kentucky Horse Park, Midsouth features a CCI1* and classic format three-days at the Prelim and Training levels in addition to Beginner Novice through Prelim horse trial divisions and a team challenge. The first horse inspection took place yesterday, CCI1* dressage is in the homestretch, and YR/JR CCI1* dressage has just begun.
EN blogger extraordinaire Amy Nelson is on the scene riding, snapping pics and taking notes, and we thank her for being our boots on the ground! Also sending out a big dose of EN good-luck to our Maggie Deatrick, who is contesting the Training Three-Day with Cthulhu.
With about two-thirds of CCI1* dressage complete and another nine combinations still to go, this guy has secured the early lead on a score of 27.3.
You can check up on live scores here. More useful links at the end of this post. Best of luck to all! Here are a few more of your pics from yesterday’s first horse inspection.
