The first horse inspection at the Ocala Jockey Club International Three-Day kicked off the 2019 edition of the event. The CCI2*-L riders presented their horses first for the ground jury of Peter Gray (CAN) and Nikki Herbert (GBR). Natasha Erschen’s Chai Tea Latte was sent to the hold, but passed upon reinspection so all 71 who presented will go forward to dressage.
In the CCI3*-L, the ground jury of Christian Landolt (SUI), Helen Brettell (GBR), and Gretchen Butts (USA) sent two horses to the hold box – Emily Beshear’s Deal With It who was accepted upon reinspection and Joe Meyer’s Gortglas Crazy Love who was represented and unfortunately was not accepted. The CCI3*-L will have 28 start dressage after last minute scratches.
The final division to present was the CCI4*-L and all 32 were accepted after their first passes down the jog lane.
Two dressage rings will run tomorrow with the CCI4*-S and CCI2*-L first up at 8:00 a.m. with the CCI3*-L starting at 12:20 p.m. The CCI4*-L has their turn in dressage on Friday beginning at 10:20 a.m.
