We can always count on Doug Payne for a great helmet cam video and he sure has delivered once again with his footage from the 2019 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event. Doug put together something extra special for us this year, overlaying USEF Network footage alongside his helmet cam footage so that we can both ride the course from his point of view and watch them from the ground at the same time.
Doug and Vandiver, a 15-year-old Trakahener (Windfall x Visions of Grandeur, by Mystic Replica xx) owned by himself, Jessica Payne and Debi Crowley, stormed around Derek di Grazia’s cross country course adding just one time penalty to their dressage score. Their long-time partnership is evident as they expertly slice-and-dice their way through the course and, yes, they did jump some of the flower decorations along the way! Doug and “Quinn” also jumped a double-clear round the next day, earning themselves a fifth place overall finish as well as the title of Reserve CCI5*-L National Champion.
