All 44 horse-and-rider combinations in the CCI2* and CCI3* divisions were accepted this afternoon at the first horse inspection of the 2018 Jersey Fresh International Three-Day Event.

The CCI2* ground jury of Mark Weissbecker (USA) and Robert Stevenson (USA) passed all 18 horses upon first inspection. While none of the 26 CCI3* competitors were sent to the hold box, Hawley Bennett-Awad was asked to jog Jollybo twice before the ground jury of Andrew Bennie (NZL), Jane Hamlin (USA), and Gretchen Butts (USA) accepted the pair.

Thursday and Friday will see two days packed full of action in the sandbox, with the CCI divisions kicking things off tomorrow morning at 9:00 a.m. and the CIC divisions taking their turn after the lunch break, beginning at 1:00 p.m. Ride times will be available here

This is Captain Mark Phillips' second year designing at Jersey Fresh, and course builder Morgan Rowsell is also the co-designer for the two-star courses. The Jersey Shore water complex has received a complete overhaul and the three-star course will feature 10 new fences, thanks to a generous donation from Dr. Brendan Furlong. Stay tuned for the USEA's course preview.

Veselka Farms to Host Bruce Davidson Clinic

"No matter how old you are, be open to all disciplines, learn how to ride a dressage horse, a gaited horse, a show jumper. Go fox hunting and point-to-pointing and horse showing. You’ll learn from all of them and when you do decide which discipline you want to do, you’ll be better at it anyway.”

Horse Heroes: Bellamy

Bellamy, an Oldenburg/Thoroughbred gelding of unknown breeding, came to Tamra Smith’s farm in Southern California with his mane half-way down his neck and filled with burrs. Bellamy had been sitting in a field for a little over a year after unseating several riders in a row and Smith, known for being good with tricky horses, agreed to take him on.
