Weekend Winners: The Fork at TIEC, Pine Hill, Rocking Horse

It’s one more weekend down until the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event! As these final preps for the big five-star tick down to the final weeks, riders at every level are also in full-tilt spring season, making for some large, competitive divisions.

The Unofficial Low Score Award for this first weekend of April goes to Benita Strini and Plain Dealing Farm’s DHI Kevin G (who I sincerely hope owes his name to Mean Girls), who earned a personal best of 20.2 and would go on to finish on it to win their Open Novice division at The Fork.

Here’s a look at the rest of this weekend’s winners:

Really pleased with big, bad Bolytair B this weekend. Had big improvement on the flat thanks to Peter Grey and Nicholas Fyffe. He showjumped great under the lights, and was a monster today around the XC. Emily Lehman has done a perfect job as usual making sure he has everything he could possibly need, which is not always easy around this time as Boly starts to become quite the handful!

Fingers crossed now that the next show for us is at the Kentucky Horse Park and we can let him RUN! πŸš€
