What a great way to start the Sunday morning with a report of the all the North American horses breezing through the Fidelity Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials CCI*** Final Horse Inspection, and looking very stylish to boot. Although it was freezing we were all happy to see the sun, but inevitably it was to be short-lived as by 10:30 the forecast rain and wind descended on Blenheim. The first group has show-jumped already as I write this, and Cindy Rawson rode a classy round on Mocharabuiee for an unlucky rail, but what an exciting horse for the future.
Cindy Rawson was first to trot up for the USA
Jules Stiller and Sintra BK who looked remarkably fresh!
Team Rebecca’s Ben practically floated down the jog strip
Pavarotti and Jessie Phoenix looked super
Pirate and Megan O’Donoghue, so impressive yesterday and looking great this morning
Lying in third place on the same score as 2nd placed Jean Teulere and 1.5 penalties off the leading score, Clark Montgomery and Loughan Glen, immaculate as always. I’m off to find Megan for a quick recap of yesterday’s action, and we’ll be back later with much more from the show-jumping this afternoon. Thanks for reading and Go Team USA at Blenheim Palace!
