Hot off the presses! The USEF just announced the recipients of Land Rover/USEF eventing competition grants for the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event and the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials.

Tiana Coudray received a grant to Rolex and will ride Jatial Inc.’s Ringwood Magister, a 15-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding. “Finn” most recently finished second in the Owen Pugh CIC3* at Burgham International. EN caught up with Tiana earlier this week to chat about Finn’s comeback.

Both Boyd Martin and Lynn Symansky received a grant for Badminton. Lynn will ride The Donner Syndicate’s Donner, a 13-year-old Thoroughbred gelding. Lynn and the Flying Deer are coming off a strong third-place finish in the packed CIC3* division at Carolina International.

Boyd confirmed to EN that he will ride both Lucy Boynton Lie’s Crackerjack, a 13-year-old Thoroughbred gelding, and Steve Blauner and Kenneth Shelley’s Master Frisky, a 12-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding, at Badminton, splitting the grant equally between the horses. “Crackers” most recently placed third in the Advanced division at Carolina, while “Mikey” finished 16th in the CIC3*.
