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.

The USEA offers many programs to help the development of upcoming event horses such as the Future Event Horse (FEH) program which focuses on yearlings, 2-year-olds, 3-year-olds, and 4-year-olds, the Young Event Horse (YEH) program which serves as an eventing talent search for 4-year-olds and 5-year-olds under saddle, and the New Event Horse program which is an adaption of the YEH program that was designed to serve as an introduction of the sport of eventing for horse and rider that provides a stepping stone to recognized eventing. For the first time ever, USEA Area IV will be hosting a competition that features all three of these programs at Woodloch Stable in Hugo, Minnesota on July 9, 2022.
