The Red Hills International Horse Trials hosted the first CCI4*-S of the year this weekend at Elinor Klapp Phipps Park in Tallahassee, Florida. Twenty-five horses set out to claim the title in the CCI4*-S, but it was Selena O'Hanlon and Foxwood High that took home the win.

O’Hanlon and Foxwood High (Rio Bronco W x Evita II), John and Judy Rumble’s 16-year-old Canadian Sport Horse gelding, rose to the top in the CCI4*-S after riding clean across the country and adding a single rail to their dressage score of 26.8 on the final day of competition.

Clayton Fredericks and FE Ophelia (Ocordo x Argentina) scored a 30.5 in dressage, good enough for sixth place headed into Saturday’s cross-country competition. After clocking around with just 8.4 time penalties, Fredericks and Diana Crawford and Hugh Wrigley’s 12-year-old Zweibrucker mare moved into fifth place after cross-country, finally finishing in second place after jumping double clear on the final day.

Martin and Kyra (VDL Ulando H x Wellesley), a 12-year-old Canadian Warmblood mare, scored a 27.8 in dressage, good enough for second place following the first phase of competition. They moved into the lead after incurring just 4.4 time penalties on cross-country and added no penalties on the final day to finish in first place on a final score of 32.2.

Martin and Kyra’s stablemate Long Island T (Ludwig von Bayern x Haupstsbuch Highlight), a 13-year-old Oldenburg/Thoroughbred gelding, led the division after dressage on a 25.5 but 12.8 time penalties on cross-country and a clear show jumping round ultimately dropped them to second place.

Halliday-Sharp and Cooley Quicksilver (Womanizer x Kylemore Crystal), an 8-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding, quietly stalked the leaders, moving up from eighth place after dressage on a score of 36.4 to fifth place after cross-country, adding 6.4 time penalties to their score, and finally jumping clear on the final day to take home third place.
