Weekend Winners: Tryon, CDCTA, Chardon Valley, Copper Meadows, Flora Lea

As we look ahead into what promises to be an all-out fall season, we’re through another jam-packed weekend of eventing action from all over. On each coast, Advanced competitors tackled Tryon’s Fall Horse Trials as well as Copper Meadows’ September event, and several Maryland 5 Star-bound pairs are ticking off their final preparations for the fall CCI5*. We’re also gearing up for the FEI Nations Cup of Eventing competition at CHIO Aachen this weekend — where the U.S. is fielding a team — followed by the FEI Eventing European Championships the weekend after — suffice it to say, there is a whole lot to keep up with these days here at EN!

This weekend’s Unofficial Low Score Award was earned by Lindsey Smith and Jackie Eckhaus’ Jumara MVS, who won their Open Novice division at Copper Meadows on a score of 22.1. In fact, Lindsey had a fantastic weekend overall, finishing third in the Area VI Training Championships on her own partner Lucky Sun and also taking a few of Tamie Smith’s up and comers out for a spin. Check her out scoring a 21.0 aboard Té Amo, who is owned by Grace Walker Alonzi:

And scoring an 18.1 aboard Jumara MVS, who is currently available for syndication through Tamie’s Next Level Eventing:

Most pro riders have a very active pipeline of young talent coming up the ranks, and this weekend it was their turn to shine under the tutelage of riders such as Lindsey as well as Nick Cwick, who also took some of Tamie’s younger horses around at Copper Meadows, while Tamie traveled back to Germany to make her final preparations for Aachen this weekend. It truly takes a village — a globe-spanning one, in this instance!
