The inaugural Stable View Spring FEI CCI-S 1*/2*/3*/4* and Adequan/USEF Youth Team Challenge Horse Trials in Aiken, S.C. ended with all four divisions running cross-country over courses designed by Mogie Bearden-Muller and Captain Mark Phillips. However, cross-country didn't cause any problems for the overnight leaders, and all four who were at the top of the leaderboard after show jumping stayed that way following cross-country.

Marilyn Little and RF Scandalous, Phoebe and Michael Manders and Jacqueline Mars’ 16-year-old Oldenburg mare (Carry Gold x Richardia) added 6.8 time penalties to their overnight score, but had enough in hand to win their second CCI4*-S in a row.

Phillip Dutton and Z added 3.2 time penalties to stay in second and put the pressure on Little as they ended just 0.3 off the lead. The 13-year-old Zangersheide gelding (Asca x Bellabouche) is owned by Thomas Tierney, Simon Roosevelt, Suzanne Lacy, Anne Jones, and Caroline Moran.

Cassie Segal, Natalie Sandler, and Lisa Darden's 11-year-old Holsteiner gelding (Cassini II x Ulla II) Erroll Gobey ended up in third place with Buck Davidson after adding just 5.2 time.

No CCI4*-S pairs made time although Sydney Solomon and Laurie Cameron's 12-year-old Hanoverian mare, Early Review C (Earl x Lois Lane) came close crossing the finish line just a second over to move up from 33rd to 10th.

The CCI4*-S division is a qualifier for the $60,000 Adequan USEA Advanced Final that will take place at the USEA American Eventing Championships presented by Nutrena Feeds in August.

The CCI4*-S top-15 final results.

Time proved a bit easier in the CCI3*-S with 10 pairs managing to make it including the winners Leslie Law and Lady Chatterley, Lesley Grant-Law and Stephen Brown's 10-year-old Holsteiner mare (Connor x Juicy). They kept a clean scorecard all weekend to end on their dressage score of 29.4.

Elisabeth Halliday-Sharp and her own Cooley HHS Calmaria, the 8-year-old Irish Sport Horse mare (Cyrano 145 x Chester Lass) added just 1.6 penalties but held onto second place.

Isabelle Bosley and Julia Luce's Night Quality, a 10-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding (OBOS Quality 004 x Night Fly) jumped from sixth to third with a double clear round. Bosley was also riding on the USEA Area II team in the Adequan/USEF Youth Team Challenge and was the winner of the CCI3*-S Challenge.

The CCI3*-S top-15 results.

Alyssa Phillips had a winning weekend and clinched both the CCI2*-S and CCI1*-S. Phillips and her own Cornelius Bo, a 7-year-old Hanoverian gelding (Concours Complet x Charlotte) bested 62 other pairs to win the CCI2*-S. With this result, the pair have now won an impressive nine events in a row.

Phillips won the CC1*-S with her own 7-year-old Mecklenburg gelding, FE Celestino (CE-Matin x Antigone), who was the 2019 USEA Young Event Horse East Coast 5-year-old Champion. The pair dropped two rails in show jumping, but a double clear cross-country kept them atop the leaderboard.

Change of Rein: Rosie Smith's Journey from Reining to the #2022AEC

Rosie Smith’s rose gold accented helmet matched her perfectly tidy bun of red hair as she took the third spot in the USEA Training Rider Championship at the 2022 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) presented by Nurena Feeds. Every little detail came together while aboard her trusted partner of nine years: the 20-year-old Connemara Irish Draught named Seamus (by Corrcullen, RID). But Smith’s first jump, back when she was only 15 years old, wasn’t with an English saddle.
