It was a tense morning at the second horse inspection as both the overnight leader, FischerRocana FST, and second-placed Nobilis 18 were held. Fortunately they both passed upon reinspection, but Paddy The Caddy wasn’t so fortunate. Three horses withdrew before the horse inspection, so 32 horses will start show jumping at the 2018 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event.

“It’s a four-star, there’s no question. You had to ride well. There was questions everywhere, there was plenty of places to have mistakes, but I don’t believe cross-country courses should just be tough. I think [Derek di Grazia] got the balance exactly right,” said Christopher Burton in the press conference following the conclusion of cross-country at the 2018 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event. The other riders joined in Burton’s praise of course designer, di Grazia, who changed things up quite a bit in his seventh year of designing.

Marilyn Little has been staying home and focusing on RF Scandalous’ training over the last year and that strategy seemed to have paid off as she scored a personal best dressage mark to take a commanding lead in the 2018 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event.

There isn’t a new name on the top of the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event leaderboard at the lunch break of day two, but it isn’t for lack of trying by Christopher Burton and Nobilis 18 who scored a 27.9 to claim the second spot at the lunch break.“It was a really cute thing at the end that the crowd was saying “oh” when he went into second place,” said Burton after his test aboard Sue Lawson, Carolyn Townsend, and Burton’s own 13-year-old Hanoverian Gelding (Nobre XX x Lilli). “I thought that was sweet.”

In July of 2016, Bromont pulled out from hosting the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG) and in November the FEI announced the Tryon International Equestrian Center as the new hosts. This timeline gave Tryon less than two years to pull together what will be the fourth largest sporting event in the world in 2018. The Mill Spring, N.C. facility is now under construction around the clock, but that didn’t stop them from hosting the WEG Eventing Test Event in the first week of April.

Like yesterday, the time was on the top of everyone’s minds – which isn’t always the case with show jumping. However, Chris Barnard’s show jumping course in the George Morris Arena at the Tryon International Equestrian Center proved to be a test for both the Fork CIC3* and Adequan USEA Gold Cup Advanced competitors.Only seven of the 31 starters jumped clear and inside the time for show jumping in the 2018 World Equestrian Games test event, and watching overnight leader, Phillip Dutton’s ride on Z, many didn’t think he would be one of those.
