Day one of the USEF/USEA Stable View Spring FEI CCI-S 1*/2*/3*/4* and Adequan/USEF Youth Team Challenge has concluded. The CCI4*-S, CCI3*-S, and CCI2*-S competitors completed the dressage portion of the competition, with the four-star and three-star divisions running in the outdoor arena in front of the pavilion and the two-star division running in the Hunter Ring. The one-star riders will begin their dressage tomorrow morning and go on to show jumping in the afternoon.

The CCI4*-S is currently being led by Marilyn Little and RF Scandalous, Phoebe and Michael Manders and Jacqueline Mars’ 16-year-old Oldenburg mare (Carry Gold x Richardia) on a 21.7. The pair are fresh off a win in the CCI4*-S at Red Hills International Horse Trials earlier this month.

There is currently a tie for second on a 25.0 between Buck Davidson and Carlevo (Eurocommerce Caresino x Ramatuelle), 14-year-old Holsteiner gelding owned by Carlevo LLC, and Tamra Smith and Ruth Bley's 16-year-old Hanoverian mare En Vogue (Earl x Laurena).

Just a bit behind on a 25.6 is Phillip Dutton and Z, 13-year-old Zangersheide gelding (Asca x Bellabouche) owned by Thomas Tierney, Simon Roosevelt, Suzanne Lacy, Anne Jones, and Caroline Moran.

In the CCI3*-S the current leaders, Amy Ruth Borun and her own Vitalis, sit on a 28.5. Vitalis is a 10-year-old Westphalian gelding (Vitalis x Barcelona). Second place belongs to the 2020 Bates USEA Mare of the Year, Lady Chatterley, ridden by Leslie Law and owned by Lesley Grant-Law and Stephen Brown. The 10-year-old Holsteiner mare (Connor x Juicy) scored a 29.4. In third place is Elisabeth Halliday-Sharp and her own Cooley HHS Calmaria, the 8-year-old Irish Sport Horse mare (Cyrano 145 x Chester Lass).

The CCI2*-S dressage is still underway, but the current leader is Alyssa Phillips and her own Cornelius Bo, a 7-year-old Hanoverian gelding (Concours Complet x Charlotte) on a 27.5. The pair are looking to maintain their winning streak – which currently sits on eight events in a row.

Stable View is hosting the first Adequan/USEF Youth Team Challenge of the year. Competitors in the challenge may compete in the CCI*-S, CCI2*-S, or CCI3*-S.

The CCI4*-S division is a qualifier for the $60,000 Adequan USEA Advanced Final that will take place at the USEA American Eventing Championships presented by Nutrena Feeds in August.
