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.

The Event at Rebecca Farm Will Have a New Feel This Year

This has been a difficult decision, but with the current pandemic situation at hand, we feel that this is the correct and ‘common sense’ direction to take. We are developing a plan to host a shorter, smaller, and more focused competition. We will be using state and local protocols to help guide us through this. Safety is paramount at Rebecca Farm, for both equine and human participants.
