Marilyn Little is one of five American riders competing at Luhmühlen CCI4* in Germany, which starts tomorrow with the first inspection, and she’s had a busy lead-up to the competition at the Upperville Colt & Horse Show in Virginia.

On Sunday she piloted Karen O’Connor’s Clearwater to a third-place finish in the $216,000 Upperville Jumper Classic CSI4*, delivering a time of 47.19 seconds in the 12-horse jump off. Tracy Fenney and Reve Du Paradis won on a time of 46.33 seconds, with Paul O’Shea and Skara Glen’s Presence in second on 46.42 seconds.

RF Scandalous, who will make her CCI4* debut at Luhmühlen, landed safely in Germany last week, and you can learn more about Marilyn’s preparation leading up to the event in this video she posted today on her Facebook page.

In addition to Marilyn and RF Scandalous, we also have four other American combinations competing in the Luhmühlen CCI4*: Hannah Sue Burnett and Harbour Pilot, Will Coleman and OBOS O’Reilly, Sharon White and Cooley On Show, and Katherine Coleman and Longwood. Go Team USA!

Leslie Wylie will be your boots on the ground at Luhmühlen, so keep it locked on EN for everything you need to know. The competition will stream live on FEI TV starting with dressage on Thursday. Go Eventing.
