Remember last year’s edition of The Fork at Tryon CIC3*/World Equestrian Games Test Event? Back in the good ol’ days of CICs … seems like so long ago. As a reminder of how that story ended, Phillip Dutton won the headline division with Z, who of course went on to be the top U.S. finisher in the WEG.
The 2019 event is upon us, with CCI3*-S, CCI2*-S and a chunk of horse trial divisions completing their dressage today (we’ll have a report from that here in a bit), and the CCI4*-S kicking off tomorrow.
To get amped up for the imminent action, let’s rewind to last year with this video of riders navigating Captain Mark Phillips’ three-star water from RNS Video. After jumping a table at 6A, riders had an option at the B element to jump the slightly longer and easier route over the duck in the water on the left, or go more direct to the narrow brush on the right. Then it was on to an up bank at 6C, followed by a corner at fence 7.
We can’t wait to catch a glimpse of this year’s track. Keep it here for more from The Fork at Tryon throughout the week. Go Eventing!
