Conditions could not have been more perfect for the Adequan USEA Gold Cup and PRO Tour Series CIC3* cross-country at The Event at Rebecca Farm. Organizer Sarah Broussard and her father Jerome provided the horses with the best possible footing and a quality course courtesy of British course designer Ian Stark. The fences, built by one of the best course builders in the world, Bert Wood, were true works of art; most of them were carved out of a solid block of wood with a chain saw and no detail was missed.
