The Maryland 5 Star Daily: Show Jumping

By Meagan DeLisle - USEA Staff

After a jam-packed week, the final day of competition at the Maryland 5 Star is upon us. Riders have shown off their style in the horse inspection, danced their way down the centerline in dressage, and contested some serious obstacles in cross-country up until this point. Now it's time to demonstrate the fitness and accuracy that each horse possesses in the final phase: show jumping.

But first, one final horse inspection to ensure that each horse is feeling their best after a long week of competition. The CCI3*-L jog begins at 8:00 a.m. with the CCI5*-L immediately after.

Of the original 50 pairs in the CCI3*-L, only 36 made it through the second phase Saturday morning. Pending results of the jog, riders will run in reverse order of placing for today's final phase of competition with show jumping action starting at 10:00 a.m.

The top of the leaderboard didn't change following cross-country in the CCI5*-L and the 35 riders that remain will be eager to solidify their standings following their performances in the main arena today. The CCI5*-L show jumping is slated to kick off at 1:00 p.m. and will also run in reverse order with dressage leader Oliver Townend and Cooley Master Class as the last to go. Will they earn the title of the first-ever Maryland 5 Star champion?

Here’s what you need to know to follow along today:

  • The entire CCI5*-L will be available via livestream through USEF Network in North America and through Horse & Country outside North America. USEF Network will also provide exclusive coverage of the CCI3*-L. Additionally, press conferences will be livestreamed through the event’s Facebook page.
  • Follow along with the live scores and ride times for all divisions here.

Rescue Horse Runaway Romeo Finds His Calling

Amanda Walker wasn’t sure what she’d gotten herself into when she went to try Runaway Romeo as a potential sales project in 2018. The gelding was a bit bigger than Walker was looking for and was quite pushy coming out of the stall. When she got on, it didn’t get much better.

USEA's Tip Tuesday: Cross-Country Positions with Karen O'Connor

For seasoned and novice riders alike, it is always good to revisit the basics. Serving as the foundation for any eventer, the positions used on the cross-country course differ from those in the dressage or show jumping ring. The USEA tuned into five-time Olympian, three-time World Equestrian Games rider, two Pan-American Games rider, and USEA ECP certified coach Karen O'Connor as she walked coaches and students at the USEA ECP Symposium through the basic positions for effective cross-country riding.
