Carolina is coming! The 2020 edition of Cloud 11 ~ Gavilan North Carolina International is fast approaching, set to take place at the Carolina Horse Park in Raeford, NC, on March 19-22, 2020.
In addition to FEI levels — CCI4*-S,CCI3*-S and CCI2*-S — the event hosts USEA horse trials divisions from Training through Advanced. All competitors will have the opportunity to test themselves against stout cross country tracks, with the upper levels designed by Ian Stark and the Prelim and Training designed by Beth Perkins.
Last year, Liz Halliday-Sharp and Fernhill By Night took the CCI4*-S win on their dressage score of 27.9 — their personal best finishing score at the level. Who’ll wear the crown this year? Of note, for 2020 Carolina International and The Fork at Tryon have teamed up to offer a North State Challenge: any horse to win either the 2*, 3* or 4* at both events this year will receive free entries to both in 2021.
Here’s a just-released promo video to get you excited:
