Liz Halliday-Sharp and Fernhill By Night Take Control of the Stable View Oktoberfest CCI4*-S

The CCI3*-S and CCI4*-S divisions were able to complete their show jumping before the torrential rain interrupted the competition for the CCI2*-S division.

The show jumping course was designed by Chris Barnard. When asked how he felt about his courses, he remarked that the CCI4*-S "walked as tough as it rode." With only 14 clear rounds in the CCI4*-S, there were many changes to the leaderboard after dressage. Barnard designed his courses to be "fair for the level - the good ones have questions to answer, and the greener ones at each level are still quite comfortable to jump around. It's such a beautiful ring, and it's easy to design a nice, flowy course. It's good footing and the horses jump well off of it."

The outdoor arena drained nicely for CCI2*-S competition to resume. The cross-country footing is in excellent shape after the rain for the final phase of the FEI competition tomorrow.

The leaderboards going into the final phase tomorrow are as follows:

Doug Payne and Quantum Leap, a 9-year-old Rheinland-Pfalz-Saar gelding, sit in third place going into cross-country tomorrow. Payne has three horses all within the top 20 of the CCI4*-S. Photo courtesy of Stable View.
