All 26 horses that completed Michael Etherington-Smith's CCI4*-S cross-country course yesterday presented at the final horse inspection this morning. The ground jury consisting of Robert Stevenson (USA) and Judy Hancock (GBR) accepted all but one horse.

Charlotte Collier's 14-year-old Holsteiner gelding Clifford M (Cristo x Naomi IV) was sent to the hold box, and unfortunately was not accepted upon re-inspection.

Chris Talley's 11-year-old Thoroughbred gelding Unmarked Bills was also sent to the hold box, but was accepted upon a second look. Now, there will be 25 horses entering the show jumping arena later this morning to take on Chris Barnard's course. The competitors will jump in reverse order of standings, putting the pressure on overnight leaders Brandon McMechan and Oscar's Wild (Whiskey Wisdom x Rax) to jump a perfect round.

Now on Course: Heartbeats and Hoofbeats

My name is Tayah Fuller and I’m 14 years old. “On course” to me is a phrase that makes my heart pump fast and my excitement go wild. There is no better feeling than galloping through a field or flying over cross-country jumps with my heart thrumming along, especially when it is with my best friend. You see, I was born with a congenital heart murmur. While it has never really affected my athletic abilities, the one time that I notice it is when I am riding through a cross-country course with my horse.
