Doug Payne, a person who can’t just be a five-star eventer and leave well enough alone, prepped himself and his stable for the Maryland 5 Star with a show jumping outing last weekend at Tryon International Equestrian Center. In addition to piloting Jane Dudinsky’s 2011 Holsteiner gelding Quintessence to a four-fault round in the CSI** Grand Prix and a 3rd place finish in the 1.45-meter FEI Speed Class …

… he treated his Maryland ride Quantum Leap to a crack at the 1.30-meter class.

They’ll take to the centerline tomorrow.

Doug is also 10th in the CCI3*-L with Camarillo, a 7-year-old gelding (Chicardo x Rihobeth, by Riverman) owned by the rider and Patrice Jennings-Rado. Their test:

Never stop being good at everything, Doug. In return, we’ll never stop hating you for it.
