Preview the Galway Downs CCI3* Cross Country with Ian Stark

Ian Stark has been hard at work designing this year’s tracks at Galway Downs, and he’s designed some serious questions on the CCI3* course that will test both horse and rider.

Many pairs here are aiming for a qualifier, others are moving their horses up to the level for the first time, and others are looking for more miles at the level — no matter what the goal, it’s certainly going to be an educational track that should be not taken for granted.

Ian took the time to walk the course for Ride On Video’s preview, and he provides some great commentary on his vision for his design. Take a look and don’t forget to tune into the live stream of fence 20 on the CCI3* at 11:45 a.m. PST/2:45 p.m. EST. We’ll bump the embedded live stream for you later on today.
