The final horse inspection for the Ocala Jockey Club International Three-Day Event took place bright and early this morning with the CCI2*-L, CCI3*-L, and CCI4*-L all presenting for their respective ground juries.

The ground jury for the CCI2*-L, Peter Gray (CAN) and Nikki Herbert (GBR), sent Evita-Veron to the hold box and Kimberly Keeton chose to withdraw from there. Evita-Veron is a 14-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare (Veron x Tomlow) owned by Keeton and Hope Thomas who was sitting in 52nd place overnight.

Sara Kozumplik Murphy did not present Edith Rameika’s Delta Queen, a 10-year-old warmblood mare, so 64 horses will show jump this morning beginning at 9:30 a.m.

All 27 horses were presented and passed in the CCI3*-L for the ground jury of Christian Landolt (SUI), Helen Brettell (GBR), and Gretchen Butts (USA).

Nilson da Silva did not present Rock Phantom, the 8-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding (Spirit House x Ballycroy Rose) in the CCI4*-L. The rest of the division was accepted and 22 horses will move forward to show jump at 1:30 p.m.

Grid Pro Quo with Caroline Martin

There are many reasons why I love using cavaletti throughout the year, but the main one is that they help you practice seeing your stride without taxing your horse’s legs. Not everyone has the option of jumping several horses a week, so it can be hard to find that balance between being able to practice your jumping enough and not over-jumping your horse.
