Forty-six horse-and-rider combinations representing five countries were presented to and accepted by the ground jury of Christian Landolt (SUI) and Jo Young (CAN) and FEI Veterinary Delegate Karen Nyrop (USA) this afternoon in the first horse inspection for the CICO3* at the 2018 Brook Ledge Great Meadow International presented by Adequan.
Of the five nations represented this weekend, three are fielding teams in the FEI Eventing Nations Cup: Great Britain, Canada, and the United States.
