All but one of the 42 horses presented to the ground jury early this morning at the 2018 Adequan/FEI North American Youth Championships (NAYC) at The Event at Rebecca Farm will continue onto the show jumping phase later this morning.

Both the CCIJ* and the CICOY2* riders presented their horses this morning after an exciting day on Ian Stark’s cross-country courses yesterday. This year’s ground jury for the NAYC in Kalispell, Mont. includes Jo Young (CAN), Robert Stevenson (USA), and Judy Hancock (GBR), and additionally FEI Veterinary Delegate Yves Rossier, and they sent five horses to the hold box in the NAYC inspections.

The tension was high as four horses in the CCIJ1*, Kaala Jaadu, Xyder, Mr. Bojangles and overnight individual leader Dassett Profile were sent to the hold box. Unfortunately, Brianna Maroney’s Kaala Jaadu was not accepted upon reinspection, but the other three horses were. Mr. Candyman was later sent to the hold in the CICOY2* but was accepted upon his second presentation.

Forty-one horses will tackle Chris Barnard’s NAYC show jumping course, as the CCIJ1* kicks things off at 9:45 a.m. (MDT) and the CICOY2* begins at 11:30 a.m.

The Last Ever Fair Hill Victors are Decided

When the overnight leader cantered into the show jumping arena at the Dutta Corp. Fair Hill International and had the first rail down, Erin Sylvester knew that she had just clinched the CCI4*-L win. It isn’t just another CCI4*-L win though – it is a truly historic one as she and Paddy The Caddy, Frank McEntee’s 12-year-old Thoroughbred gelding (Azamore x Slamy), will be the final names inscribed on the Fair Hill trophy.

One Key Withdrawal, but Rest Accepted at Final Fair Hill Horse Inspection

All horses who presented this morning at the final horse inspection at the Dutta Corp. Fair Hill International Three-Day Event were accepted, but one notable horse wasn’t presented. D.A. Duras, Jacqueline Mars and Debbie Adam’s 11-year-old KWPN gelding (Numero Uno x Medoc) was withdrawn by Lauren Kieffer before the horse inspection. The pair were sitting in third place in the CCI4*-L so their withdrawal moves up the majority of the division.

Waylon Roberts and Woods Baughman Work their Way to the Top of the Fair Hill Standings

The scoreboard was kept working at full tilt on cross-country today at The Dutta Corp. Fair Hill International as 24 of the 41 CCI4*-L starters picked up some sort of jump penalty on Derek di Grazia’s course. The leader position changed several times throughout the afternoon as 15 penalties were handed out by the ground jury, but Waylon Roberts and Lancaster kept their slate clean to take over the top spot.
