Thanks to Ride On Video, we have video of Matt Brown’s path to victory in the CIC3* at Rebecca Farm with Super Socks BCF. Matt and “Flaxen” were fourth in the horse’s first CIC3* at Twin Rivers in April, scoring 53.4 in dressage and adding 6.4 cross-country time penalties and one rail in show jumping to finish in fourth place on 63.8.
At Rebecca, they scored 47.3 in dressage from judges Gretchen Butts, Susan Baxter and Marilyn Payne, an improvement on their previous CIC3* score of six points. They jumped clear over Ian Stark’s challenging CIC3* track with 7.2 time and then turned in a beautiful clear show jumping round the next day to clinch the win on 54.5 — that’s a nearly 15-point margin over second place.
Matt and Flaxen have been invited to train with Coach David O’Connor on the last two USEF Eventing High Performance Training Lists. Keep your eyes on this pair, EN! Many thanks to Ride On Video for sending us footage of Matt and Flaxen’s dominant performance across all three phases. Go Eventing.
