Lynn’s Mid-Afternoon CIC3* Update from The Fork

Lynn Symansky and Donner are leading the CIC3* at The Fork on a 46.4. Photo by Samantha Clark.

Lynn Symansky and Donner are your new leaders in the CIC3* at The Fork, performing a very smooth, correct test that was a pleasure to watch. She broke her hand while riding a young horse earlier this season and is still healing from that injury, but you never would have known that based on how well she rode today. Samantha Clark caught up with her for an interview after her ride. Stay tuned today to hear more directly from Lynn about how her hand is healing and how she’s preparing for Rolex with Donner. Many thanks to Samantha for providing the photo above.

Marilyn Little and RF Smoke on the Water are sitting in second on a 47.

Marilyn Little and RF Smoke on the Water had a solid test despite a slight moose moment on Smoke’s part and breaking to the canter during the first medium trot. Dressage is Marilyn’s self-professed weaker phase, and she really likes this horse because his talent for dressage helps her out immensely. Marilyn and Smoke were second in the CIC3* at Red Hills last month and are bound for Rolex in just a few weeks, where she’ll also be riding RF Demeter, who went yesterday in dressage and is sitting on a 51.6 for 17th place.

Emily Beshear and Here's To You had a really lovely test for a 48.8.

There were quite a few really nice tests this afternoon. Emily Beshear and Here’s To You missed the halt and rein back just like Meghan O’Donoughe and Pirate did earlier in the day. Had Emily not had that error, she would have likely cracked the top five; she is currently tied for eighth with Katie Ruppel and Sir Donovan on a 48.8. Caitlin Silliman and Catch A Star also put in a very fluid, correct test, scoring a 53.4 to tie them for 25th. She is currently leading the CIC2* with Remington XXV. We are heading into the last dressage tests in the CIC3* and have some big names still to come, including Boyd Martin and Trading Aces, Phillip Dutton and Mighty Nice, Buck Davidson and Ballynoecastle RM, and Becky Holder and Can’t Fire Me. Stay tuned!
