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.

Dibowski Wants You to Feel the Rhythm at the 2020 ICP Symposium

Yesterday Andreas Dibowski said that he was ready for the “fun stuff” and today he had the chance to share his knowledge of both show jumping and cross-country to a large audience who attended day two of the USEA Instructors’ Certification Program (ICP) Symposium. The morning started out in the ring at Barnstaple South with three groups of riders – Beginner Novice, Training, and Preliminary, and three groups of the same levels took to the cross-country in the afternoon. While the exercises and jumps got progressively harder throughout the day, the warm-ups and themes stayed the same.
