The final day of the Galway Downs International Event in Temecula, California dawned cold and sunny for the final horse inspection of the CCI4*-L, CCI3*-L, and CCI2*-L.

In the CCI3*-L, 12 horses came forward to be evaluated by the ground jury of Jane Hamlin (USA), Robert Stevenson (USA), and Bea di Grazia (USA). Anna Stein's Zaboomafoo was held but passed upon reinspection. All others were passed on first presentation.

The final four competitors in the CCI4*-L presented to the ground jury of Jane Hamlin, Robert Stevenson, and Helen Brettell (GBR). All were passed upon first inspection.

Jane Hamlin, Robert Stevenson, and Helen Brettell also inspected the 36 horses remaining in the CCI2*-L. Both India McEvoy's Redbull and Kristi Harriage's Gleaming Road were sent to the hold box. Redbull withdrew from the hold and Gleaming Road was not passed upon reinspection.

Show jumping for the CCI3*-L will begin at 9:50 a.m., followed by the CCI4*-L at 11:00 a.m. and the CCI2*-L at 12:00 p.m.

Now On Course: Woodrow Goes Wild to Mild

Did you know that there are over 53,000 wild mustangs in holding facilities across the United States? My mustang journey began in February 2018 after losing my heart horse whom I had just shy of 20 years. I wanted another horse of color, and my friend sent me the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) internet adoption link. I was amazed at all of the horses available on the internet auction, but I quickly fell in love with Woodrow. I learned that he was a popular band stallion in Wyoming and had been followed by photographers for close to three years.
