Megan Lynn and The Natural E Lead Day 1 Ocala CCI1* Dressage

After a big win in the Red Hills CIC1* last month, Megan Lynn and Elevate Event Team’s The Natural E have come out swinging once again at Ocala International 3-Day Festival of Eventing. Their score of 38.1 took the day one dressage lead in the CCI1* division, which saw 26 rides today and will continue tomorrow with another 29 tests.

Shout out to the owner of 9-year-old Danish Warmblood gelding’s (Linardo X Camelott Af Ommestrip, by Come Back II), Karen Isberg of Kentucky Performance Products, whose line of natural vitamin-E supplements inspired the horse’s name!

“He was a good boy today, I’m very happy with him!,” Megan says. “I wasn’t sure how this test — being test A, not test B like at Red Hills — was going to go with him. He can anticipate sometimes and the movements seem to come faster in this test, but he was great. I love this horse!”
