Eventers are known for helping each other out and when Erin Sylvester decided to head west to compete in The Event at Rebecca Farm, she texted Tamra Smith and asked if she would be willing to give her some support throughout the week. Smith readily agreed and both the student and the teacher were rewarded with leading three-star victory gallops today. Smith topped the Adequan USEA Gold Cup CIC3* with Judith McSwain’s Fleeceworks Royal while Sylvester jumped a beautiful clear show jump round to win the third annual CCI3* with Frank Macentee’s Paddy the Caddy – both with impressive leads.

Tamra Smith rode Judith McSwain’s Fleeceworks Royal clear around the Adequan USEA Gold Cup CIC3* cross-country track with 10.4 time faults, and still managed to maintain their overnight lead. The 8-year-old Holsteiner mare by Riverman and out of Marisol had scored a 42.6 in dressage yesterday, claiming an eight point lead over the second-placed pair, so she had some room to spare, and Smith chose to run the horse a bit slow and take her time on course today.

In his preview of the new Fork cross-country course, Tremaine Cooper said that he and co-course designer, Capt. Mark Phillips wanted to create a track that would provide a positive final run before the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event in a few weeks. The duo definitely accomplished their goal as all 17 horses who started on the CIC3* track at the Tryon International Equestrian Center came home with clean jumping rounds. Three riders even crossed through the finish line with no time penalties to add to their scores.

The top two places of the Adequan USEA Gold Cup CIC3* at The Fork Horse Trials remained unchanged following the show jumping phase as both Marilyn Little with RF Scandalous and Kim Severson with Cooley Cross Border jumped fault-free rounds. Chris Barnard’s show jumping course in the George Morris Arena at the Tryon International Equestrian Center caused very little trouble for the three-star competitors with 14 of the 19 pairs leaving all of the rails in their cups.
