Only 18 days left before the kick off of the $50,000 Grand Prix Eventing at Bruce’s Field, the unofficial ushering in of the new eventing year… but who’s counting?
We took a look at the early entries just a few days ago, and were already getting excited with numerous talented pairs in the line up.
Some recent additions only strengthen the field. We see Doug Payne now throwing his hat into the ring with three of his: Land Rover/USEF CCI5*-L National Champion Quantum Leap, 2019 Pan American Championships mount Starr Witness, and 4* ride Camarillo. Doug is joining his Tokyo team members Boyd Martin, with his Tokyo partner Tsetserleg, Luke 140, and Grand Prix Eventing defending champion Fedarman B. Phillip Dutton also brings Tokyo mount Z in addition to Azure. Two-time winner Liz Halliday-Sharp will also be a force to be reckoned with, who brings forward three horses for a try at this year’s crown.
