U.S. International Eventing Season Set to Conclude This Weekend at Tryon International

Sydney Conley Elliot and QC Diamantaire.

We are officially underway at the concluding international event of the U.S. season at Tryon International Equestrian Center, where the USEF CCI4*-L Eventing National Championship, the Adequan/USEF Eventing Youth Team Challenge East Coast Final, and FEI divisions from 1* up all running this weekend. I’ll be your eyes on the ground this weekend beginning Friday, but the action has already kicked off with the first horse inspection this afternoon.

A total of 21 horses and riders will contest the USEF CCI4*-L Eventing National Championship this weekend while a group of 13 more pairs will compete in the CCI4*-S. The schedule for these two headlining divisions is as follows:

Thursday November 11:

  • 8:00 a.m. EST: CCI4*-L dressage

Friday November 12:

  • 1:15 p.m. EST: CCI4*-S dressage

Saturday November 13:

  • 10:15 a.m. EST: CCI4*-L cross country
  • 11:30 a.m. EST: CCI4*-S show jumping

Sunday November 14:

  • 8:00 a.m. EST Final Horse Inspection
  • 11:00 a.m. EST: CCI4*-L show jumping
  • 12:00 p.m. EST: CCI4*-S cross country

You’ll be able to follow along with every division this weekend thanks to a live stream hosted by USEF Network. You can view the complete broadcast schedule here.

Captain Mark Phillips has designed the cross country tracks for this weekend, all of which with the exception of the CCI1*-L will contain questions at the end on “the hill” — a steep uphill climb that heads back in the direction of stabling and was made famous (infamous?) at the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games. Maps of the CCI4*-L and CCI4*-S are below:

The CCI4*-L entry list is as follows (Editor’s Note: the field thinned by two this afternoon after the first horse inspection, where Meg Kepferle’s Anakin along with Victoria Garland’s FE Capricino were sadly not accepted):
