Who Jumped it Best: The Kentucky CCI4*-S Defender Off-Road Combination

Who Jumped It Best?

Our Who Jumped it Best? today takes us back to nearly two weeks ago, when all eyes were fixed upon the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event and its two jam-packed, ludicrously exciting classes. We’ve already given you the chance to cast your educated eye over some of the CCI5* competitors, who we pitted against one another over the Wofford Rails before the Head of the Lake, so now we’re turning our attention to the CCI4*-S — and, more specifically, to the Defender Off-Road question at 10ABC. This sunken road complex consisted of a set of upright rails on MIMs clips, a bounce to a step down, and then an arcing left-handed turn to a broad brush-topped spread at the C element, which is what we’re judging today. Bearing in mind the long, downhill approach to the complex, and the need to prepare for another single fence not long after this one, take a look at the following pictures and then scroll down to the cast your vote for the horse and rider who made the best effort over this big fence.

Now, it’s over to you: cast your vote for the horse and rider you think made the best effort, and help them on their way to eternal glory and bragging rights:
