Nupafeed Weekend Winners: Pine Top, Three Lakes

One thing I will always respect about the pros who call the sport of eventing home is the sheer dedication that they and their teams display each and every weekend. Take Doug Payne and Liz Halliday (if I missed anyone else pulling double duty, my apologies!), for example. Both of these riders had horses competing at both Pine Top and another show over the weekend โ€” Doug at a jumper show in Aiken and Liz at Three Lakes.

Somehow and thanks to the tireless work of these riders’ support teams, Doug and Liz were able to pull off great weekends in two different states…a feat that frankly makes my head spin! Well done, teams. You can catch up on the reports from the upper levels at Pine Top here.

Real quick, how cool is this shot of Jennie Brannigan and Alyssa Phillips galloping together after Three Lakes?

This weekend’s low score winners competed in the Open Novice division at Three Lakes; Jane Musselman and Engapore finished their weekend on a 21.2 to easily win the very official unofficial award. Well done! This type of score isn’t too out of the ordinary for this pair โ€” they also picked up an impressive 19.1 last year.
