No one could top Sandra Auffarth and Dörthe Loheit and Marina Köhncke’s 12-year-old Holsteiner gelding Let’s Dance 73’s (Lancer II x Stella VIII) score of 24.9 from yesterday’s dressage competition at the Military Boekelo CCIO4*-L, but British rider Laura Collett and London 52 (Landos x Vernante) came the closest. Collett and her own, Keith Scott, and Karen Bartlett’s 10-year-old Holsteiner gelding laid down a 26.0 for third place heading into tomorrow’s cross-country competition. The pair were winners earlier this year in the Chatsworth CCI4*-S.

Fellow Brit Sarah Bullimore and Corouet (Balou du Rouet x Lilly Corinne), her own, Brett Bullimore, and the Kew Jumping Syndicate’s 8-year-old Oldenburg gelding, were the only other pair to break into the top 10 today, scoring a 26.5 to sit tied for sixth place with Michael Jung and Mitt Hjärta Hästsport and Hälsocenter’s Creevagh Cooley (Camiro de Haar Z x Darragh Field), an 11-year-old Irish Sport Horse mare.

Tamra Smith and Mai Baum (Loredano x Ramira), Eric Markell and Ellen and Alex Ahearn's 13-year-old German Sport Horse gelding, now sit in eight place on their score of 26.7. Jennie Brannigan and Stella Artois, the Stella Artois Syndicate's 11-year-old Holsteiner/Thoroughbred mare, are in 31st on 31.3 and Elisabeth Halliday-Sharp and Cooley Quicksilver (Womanizer x Kylemore Crystal), The Monster Partnership's 8-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding, lie in a four-way tie for 39th on 31.7.

Team reserve rider Matt Flynn and Patrick and Kathleen Flynn and Merry Go Round Farm's 10-year-old KWPN gelding Wizzerd (Wizzerd x Amai) scored a 32.9 today for 53rd place going into cross-country.

As all FEI Eventing Nations Cup team riders rode yesterday, the team standings from the first day of competition remain unchanged today.

Memories from the Vet Box with Kerry Millikin

“I wouldn’t trade it for anything, it was an amazing experience.” Twenty-five years ago, Kerry Millikin and her off-the-track Thoroughbred gelding, Out and About (who was only 8 years old at the time) won the individual Olympic bronze medal at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games, making her one of five females to have earned an individual Olympic medal for the U.S.
