USEA Podcast #252: Marching in on the Season

By USEA

In the latest episode of the USEA Official Podcast, Nicole Brown catches up with Frankie Thieriot Stutes whose five-star campaigner Chatwin was back in action at the Fresno County Horse Park Horse Trials. The team talks through the eye-catching performances this spring and look forward to Red Hills International at the weekend.

  • Starr Witness and Doug Payne put in a dazzling performance in the mare's first Advanced level event at the Pine Top Advanced Horse Trials, taking home the win on a score of 25.8.
  • In the other Advanced division at the Pine Top Advanced Horse Trials, Liz Halliday-Sharp and Cooley Quicksilver had an impressive performance, winning on a score of 29.6.
  • At the Rocking Horse Winter II Advanced Horse Trials, Buck Davidson scored the first, second, and fourth slots in the Advanced B division with Carlevo, Erroll Gobey, and Copper Beach, respectively.
  • The Advanced A division at Rocking Horse was topped by Canadian Lisa Marie Fergusson and Honor Me on a score of 36.9.
  • Frankie Thieriot Stutes and Chatwin were out and about at the Fresno County Horse Park Horse Trials last month, stretching their legs at the Preliminary level after a bit of a hiatus at the end of 2019.
  • Before the horses ship over to Red Hills International this coming weekend, many of them will be stopping off at the Ocala Horse Properties Eventing Prix Invitational, the brainchild of Max Corcoran and Scott Keach, on Tuesday, March 3.
  • The winners of the Red Hills International CCI4*-S from the last three years are all returning this year to see if they can reclaim the title, and there are several ones to watch in the Advanced division as well.

Cooley Master Class Can’t be Caught on Cross-Country at Maryland 5 Star

The forecasted downpours held off until the last horse and rider crossed the finish flags during the CCI5*-L cross-country at the Maryland 5 Star today, confirming the event’s decision to move up the start. The majority of riders had sunny skies and a cool breeze as backdrop to tackle Ian Stark’s five-star course across the sprawling grounds at Fair Hill in Elkton, Md. Before cross-country there was much chatter about the testing terrain, but 11 pairs managed to make the time despite the hills. At the end of the day, the top three riders held onto their podium positions going into show jumping tomorrow with overnight leader Oliver Townend and Cooley Master Class (Ramiro B x The Swallow) impressing all who watched at each and every question.
