Commando 3 Conquers Morven Park International CCI4*-L Cross-Country

It can often be an unknown when a rider buys a horse produced by someone else, and top riders like Boyd Martin aren’t immune to that. When he tried Commando 3 late last year, the gelding had competed through his first CCI4*-S with Swedish rider Louise Romeike, and while Martin had high hopes for “Connor,” he knew he wouldn’t really find out what kind horse he was until he tackled a tough CCI4*-L course.

Collett and London 52 Stay Strong Over a Tough Longines Luhmühlen CCI5*-L Track

Laura Collett had a few seconds in hand as she headed out onto Mike Etherington-Smith’s cross-country course at the Longines Luhmühlen CCI5*-L this morning with London 52.

After a disappointing run on her first horse Dacapo, where she retired on course, Collett was determined to give London 52, or “Dan” as he’s known in the barn, a good ride around the twisty, mentally-taxing track.
