Fifty horses move forward in the Adequan North American Youth Championships (NAYC) after the final horse inspection this morning. Both the CCIJ2*-L and the CCIY3*-S divisions completed Ian Stark’s cross-country courses yesterday, with 52 horses galloping through the finish flags.

Out of those 52 horses that completed NAYC cross-country, one did not present at this morning’s final horse inspection. Megan Loughnane had to make the tough decision to withdraw her 10-year-old Holsteiner, Linford, who was sitting in individual fourth place after cross-country, and also held an important score for their Area I/II gold medal positioned team. This will now shake up the team standings as the team sitting in first, will now go behind the two other teams in the CCIY3*-S.

The NAYC ground jury of Mark Weissbecker and Peter Gray sent three horses to the hold box this morning in the CCIJ2*-L: Beechcraft, Fritz Patrick, and Eli. Madison Chisholm (Area II) withdrew her 10-year-old Thoroughbred Beechcraft (Sarava x JustTellTheStory) after meeting with the veterinarians in the hold box.

Olivia Miller (Area VII) represented her 12-year-old Oldenburg Fritz Patrick (Regazzoni x Pandora) and was then accepted upon a second jog. The same thing went for Mikayla Hoffman (CAN) and Eli, as they were accepted upon reinspection.

The CCIJ2*-L will tackle Chris Barnard’s show jumping course at 9:45 a.m. and the CCIY3*-S will jump at 12:15 p.m.

Considerations for Building Cross-Country Jumps at Home

If your farm has the space to set up a cross-country schooling course, it can be to your advantage to have cross-country jumps available for schooling purposes. Safety should be the number one priority when designing and building cross-country jumps, and an expert should be consulted whenever possible.
