Who Jumped It Best? Fitch’s Corner Preliminary Edition

Fernanda Kellogg and Kirk Henckels hosted the 23rd running of Fitch’s Corner Horse Trials this past weekend in Millbrook, New York, with competitors from all over the East Coast flocking to their beautiful farm to enjoy one of the summer’s most popular events.

Will Coleman cleaned up across several divisions, taking first and second in Open Preliminary with Butch Cassidy and Boris O’Hara on 26.0 and 32.9, third and fourth in Preliminary Horse with Don Dante and Highly Suspicious on 35.6 and 36.6, and first in Training Horse with Tropics on 26.8.

Thanks to Joan Davis and Flatlandsfoto, we have beautiful images of the competitors in the Preliminary Horse division, which Frederick Lagimoniere and Charcoal City won on 32.5. Take a look at each of the photos and vote in the poll at the bottom of the post for which horse and rider you think present the best overall picture.
