The FEI divisions got underway at the 2019 edition of The Event at Rebecca Farm in Kalispell, Mont. with the first horse inspections. All horses who presented today were ultimately accepted by the ground jury of Robert Stevenson, Richard Baldwin, Valerie Pride, and Mark Weissbecker.

Of the nine horses starting the CCI4*-L, only Rebecca Hoos’ 17-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding, Little Cruz (Cruz Forever x Cavalero) was sent to the hold box. He was accepted upon reinspection.

In the CCI4*-S all 14 of the starters will be moving on to dressage. Madeleine Scott’s Crosby’s Gold, her own 10-year-old Thoroughbred gelding, was sent to the hold but accepted on second look.

The CCI2*-L begins dressage at 8:20 a.m. (MT) tomorrow while the CCI3*-L, CCI4*-S, and CCI4*-L all have their turn in the dressage arena on Friday.

Jung Blazes to the Top With Dressage Phases Concluding in Tokyo

The 2012 and 2016 individual Olympic champion, Germany’s Michael Jung, blazed into first place after dressage at the Tokyo 2020 Games with a superb test on Chipmunk.

Deservedly scoring 21.1 - a record for both rider and his country at an Olympics, according to EquiRatings - it was a joy to watch. From the first extended trot, the pair looked secure, positive, and harmonious. The test was as accurate and as well-delivered as that of long-time leaders Oliver Townend and Ballaghmor Class (GBR), but with more expression and ease. Jung and the Contendro 13-year-old demonstrated all this specially-written, short Olympic test asks for and each movement flowed into the next.
