The CIC* A and B divisions ran over Nina Fout’s cross country track this morning at Plantation Field International Horse Trials. Time penalties proved to be the deciding factor on the state of the leaderboard after two phases.
In division A, Allison Springer and Lord Willing will head into show jumping tomorrow on a 41.6 without a rail in hand over second place Ryan Wood and Shannondale Percy (43.5) or third place Kelly Pugh and Corazon (44.5).
Jenny Caras and Fernhill Full Throttle move into the lead in the Junior/Young Riders CIC*-B division have run around double clear to stay on a 40.7. Haley Carspecken and True Grace are close behind on a 41.6 and Tayler Stewart and Ideal Contini are third on 43.5. Only one rail separates the top five in this class.
Now it’s time to play Who Jumped It Best? featuring Jr./YR CIC* riders at Plantation Field. Keep in mind this vertical rail and its decorative nod to the area’s thriving foxhunting culture is the A element of a three-part combination late on the course.
