Back for its 11th year, Woodside Horse Park in Woodside, California will host FEI divisions as a part of their fall event, the Woodside International Horse Trials. Not only will top international competitors have the chance to contest international CCI4*-S, CCI3*-S, and CCI2*-S divisions, but national competitors will enjoy competition from Introductory to Advanced levels throughout the weekend. Learn about the history of the Woodside Horse Trials in the Events A-Z article.

The Field:

  • The entire CCI4*-S field are veterans of the level with multiple four-star outings to their name.
  • James Alliston and Helen Alliston’s 12-year-old Hanoverian gelding Paper Jam (Paparazzo x Reely Jammin XX) are coming in off of a win in the CCI4*-L this summer at Rebecca Farm. Interestingly enough, the 2020 Woodside International was Paper Jam’s first CCI4* outing of his career where the duo took home fifth.
  • In addition to riding Paper Jam in the CCI4*-S, Alliston has eight other entries this weekend: two in the CCI3*-S, one in the Advanced, two in the Intermediate, one in Preliminary, and two in Training.
  • Alexandra MacLeod and Newmarket Jack earn the most miles traveled to compete at Woodside, hailing from Marshall, Virginia.
  • Also traveling in from out-of-state are Megan Sykes and Classic’s Mojah of Granbury, Texas, Ryleigh Leavitt and Moonlight Crush of Littleton, Colorado, and Sophia Click and Quidproquo of Fall City, Washington.
  • Erin Kellerhouse and her 10-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding Woodford Reserve (Tinaranas Inspector x Laharns Laughton) are returning to contest the CCI4*-S in 2021, hoping to improve upon their second place finish (their debut at the level) and snag the victory.
  • Australian transplant Rebecca Breitling will be giving the CCI4*-S at Woodside a go with Arnell Sporthorses’ 10-year-old British Sport Horse gelding Caravaggio II. The pair claimed second in the CCI3*-S at Woodside in 2020.

The Facts:

  • Mary Duenow (USA) is the technical delegate with Wendy Wergeles (USA) assisting.
  • Sandy Phillips (GBR) is the president of the ground jury and will be assisted by Marilyn Payne (USA).
  • Ian Stark (GBR) and Bert Wood (USA) are the cross-country course designers.
  • Chris Barnard (GBR) is the show jumping course designer.
  • All CCI divisions will be offering $2,000 in prize money per division.
  • The CCI4*-S and Advanced divisions are qualifiers for the $60,000 Adequan USEA Advanced Final that will take place at the USEA American Eventing Championships presented by Nutrena Feeds.
