It was an uphill battle for the Land Rover U.S. Eventing Team, however, their perseverance earned them a fourth place at the FEI Eventing Nations Cup CICO3* Aachen. Led by Chef d’Equipe Erik Duvander, the U.S. team comprised of Will Coleman riding OBOS O’Reilly, Buck Davidson riding Carlevo, Lauren Kieffer riding Landmark’s Monte Carlo, and Kim Severson riding Cooley Cross Border ended on a score of 189.1. New Zealand earned gold with a score of 112.9 ahead of France and New Zealand, who won silver and bronze respectively.

“[CHIO Aachen] is one of the best competitions in the world, and there is a ton of learning to be done here,” said Duvander. “Every time you go to Aachen, you learn. The competition is very tough; the best judges are always here, and the course is unique in the way that you have to jump in the big stadium. The cross-country course is highly technical and very fast. People want to take a risk and go fast. It is a high risk when you go fast. When you go slow, it is safer.”

Severson and Cooley Cross Border, The Cross Syndicate’s 11-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding, led the way for the Land Rover U.S. Eventing Team, finishing as the top-placed pair in 21st place, picking up 17.2 time penalties.
