All Horses Move Forward at Jersey Fresh International First Horse Inspection

By Jessica Duffy - USEA Staff

The Jersey Fresh International Three-Day Event kicked off this afternoon at the Horse Park of New Jersey in Allentown, N.J. with the first horse inspection for the CCI3*-L and CCI4*-L divisions.

The 17 horses in the CCI3*-L were first to present to the ground jury of Robert Stevenson (USA), Valerie Vizcarrando-Pride (USA), and Janice Conlon (USA). Jos UFO De Quidam (Heather Jane Morris) was the sole horse in the CCI3*-L to be sent to the hold box and was accepted after reinspection.

Following the CCI3*-L, the 18 horses in the CCI4*-L trotted up in front of Ground Jury President Sue Baxter (GBR) and Ground Jury Members Jo Young (CAN) and Wayne Quarles (USA). Both Danger Mouse (Caroline Martin) and Tag (Erin Pullen) were sent to the hold box but passed upon representation.

The CCI-L horses get a break tomorrow while the CCI3*-S and CCI4*-S horses perform their dressage tests. Dressage will begin in the Grand Prix Arena at 8:00 a.m. with two rings running concurrently.
