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.

Now On Course: Handing Over The Reins

I’m not one for the spotlight. As the voice of the Association, you don’t need to know my personal views, political, eventing, or otherwise. So despite my byline appearing on thousands of articles on the USEA website and magazine, this is probably only the second time I’m writing about myself (the first was about my love for lessons, and reading it now makes me laugh as I am still 100% addicted). But as I am now just a USEA member I thought I would share a bit of my journey to add to our member spotlight series, Now on Course.
