The Galway Downs International Event kicked off this afternoon in Temecula, California with the first horse inspection for the CCI4*-L, CCI3*-L, and CCI2*-L international divisions as well as the Hylofit USEA Classic Series Training Three-Day.

First, the Training Three-Day President of the Ground Jury Amanda Miller (USA) evaluated the 18 horses in the division. Emma Rusank and The Honey Factor were the only pair sent to the hold, but they were passed upon reinspection.

Then, the 13 horses in the CCI3*-L came forward before the ground jury of Jane Hamlin (USA), Robert Stevenson (USA), and Bea di Grazia (USA). All horses were passed upon first inspection.

Jane Hamlin, Robert Stevenson, and Helen Brettell (GBR) inspected the six competitors in the CCI4*-L. All were passed upon first inspection.

Finally, 46 horses were presented to Jane Hamlin, Robert Stevenson, and Helen Brettell for the CCI2*-L. Dana Chase and Chatsworth Veyron were the only pair that did not pass inspection.

Dressage for the Training Three-Day, CCI3*-L, and CCI4*-L begins at 2:00 p.m. this afternoon. The CCI2*-L will perform their dressage tests tomorrow starting at 8:00 a.m.
