The Chattahoochee Hills International and Horse Trials officially kicked off on Friday morning with dressage running in three separate rings. Early weather reports warned of impending thunder storms conjuring, and organizer Hugh Lochore was actually looking forward to the rain in order to save his crew from spending time in the water truck. While the rain never materialized, a few notably strong rides did in the Adequan USEA Gold Cup and PRO Tour Series CIC3* division.

Today’s show jumping course proved to be quite influential with all of the FEI divisions’ leaderboards shuffling around. When overnight leader Liz Halliday-Sharp dropped a rail with Deborah Halliday’s Fernhill by Night, the pressure was on Jennie Brannigan and Cambalda (Ping) to jump a clear round. Luckily Ping is known for his show jumping prowess and Nina Gardner’s 13-year-old Irish Sport Horse put in a nearly flawless round to take the lead in The Fork’s CIC3*.
