Yesterday was a busy day at Poplar Place Farm, running their annual spring horse trials from beginner novice through CIC3*. The upper levels show jumped on Saturday, and will do cross-country today. Some of the levels ran cross-country Saturday and will show jump on Sunday as the organizers scheduled nearly 400 horses this weekend.
Here are a few scores from Saturday. Show jumping proved very influential, with rails common in the FEI divisions, Advanced, and Intermediate. Kyle Carter is having an excellent weekend, with horses in the top 3 of each CIC division. Jessica Phoenix is dominating the CIC3*, sitting first, second, and sixth going into cross-country. Good luck to all competitors today!
