It was a busy day of jumping at Pine Top and we’ve crowned the Advanced and Intermediate winners following the conclusion of cross country.
Ariel Grald and Annie Eldridge’s Forrest Gump 124 (Fuerst Nymphenburg – Amaterasu, by Amerigo Vespucci xx) maintained their dressage lead to take the wire-to-wire win in the Advanced division, ending the weekend with a handful of cross country time penalties and a final score of 35.1. Planned and/or educational time would shuffle the remainder of the leaderboard as most riders are setting up for bigger destinations later this spring. Booli Selmayr and her 15-year-old Irish Sport Horse, Millfield Lancando, moved from 22nd after show jumping into second thanks to a quicker turn of foot, ending their weekend on a score of 37.8. Allie Knowles and Katherine O’Brien’s Ms. Poppins (Congress – Copa Cabana, by Champion du Lys maintained their third place throughout all three phases to finish on a 41.3.
