Who Jumped It Best? Carolina CIC2* Cross Country Edition

Fifty-eight horses and riders ultimately set out on Ian Stark’s CIC2* course at Carolina International, with 47 completing. One of the most difficult combinations on course proved to be Stonehenge, with an airy open corner set on a bending line following a log. Ian stark’s bold, forward design style meant going for an attacking three strides produced the best result for most horses and riders.

Here’s a look at 10 two-star pairs that had beautiful trips through Stonehenge and went on to complete the course. Channel your inner George Morris and vote in the poll at the bottom of the post for which horse and rider you think present the best overall picture over the fence.
