What an incredible day of cross country we watched at Burghley yesterday! This kid is headed into showjumping in 16th place — the highest placed American — after rocketing from 50th after dressage thanks to a clear and speedy round. Alright, alright, she’s not exactly a kid anymore (the flashback photo above by Flatlandsfoto is from a local event in 2009) but 5* rookie Cornelia Dorr is still one of the youngest in the competition this weekend. Her beautiful round yesterday made Area I and beyond very proud!
Today’s second horse inspection begins at 9.30 AM BST/4.30 AM EST and I’m guessing it’ll be completed by the time most are reading this! Click here for the latest.
