JM Durr made the trip all the way from California to North Carolina to campaign some sales horses on the hunter/jumper circuit at Tryon International this fall. Aside from eventing through the CCI3* level, JM also has a stable full of jumpers (and apparently hunters!) that he sells to support his business.

One such horse in his string is 6-year-old Casanova M, a Hanoverian owned by Ruth Bley who has been dabbling in both the jumpers and the hunters at Tryon this month. Competing in the Open Hunter division, JM and Casanova M finished in sixth place out of 21 entries.

I always enjoy seeing eventers branching out and trying their hand in other disciplines, and while it took me a minute to get used to watching, it’s pretty neat to see JM doing well on his East Coast trip. Just don’t leave us!
