Eighty-three horses were presented to the ground jury of Anne-Mette Binder (DEN), Jane Hamlin (USA), and Andrew Bennie (NZL), all of whom passed the first horse inspection and will proceed to the dressage phase of competition over the next two days.

Two horses were sent to the hold box: Imperial van de Holtakkers, ridden by Joris Vanspringel (BEL), and Rumor Has It N.O.P., ridden by Merel Blom (NED). Both were passed upon representation.

Team announcements will be flowing in over the next few hours, including the highly anticipated U.S. Team announcement. Ride times will also become available this evening. While you’re waiting, check out the USEA’s fence-by-fence preview of Captain Mark Phillips’ WEG cross-country course. To follow along with all the action this week, check out the USEA’s fast facts.

Dressage competition will commence tomorrow morning at 9:00 a.m. in the Tryon Stadium.

MACTA Cross-Country Schooling Day a Success Amid COVID-19 Restrictions

The spring eventing season in the Midwest is always a toss-up due to unpredictable weather. Will it rain, will it be sunny, or will it be a snowstorm? No one knows! Mid-America Combined Training Association’s (MACTA) first cross-country schooling of the season was cancelled in March due to extremely muddy footing conditions and by the time our April dates came around, COVID-19 was in full force and we were unable to host our cross-country schooling and schooling show.
