This past weekend the Fork Horse Trials in Mill Spring, N.C. became the first venue to host a division held at the Modified level. The Modified level, designed as a stepping stone between the Training and Preliminary was added as a USEA recognized level for the 2017 competition season and while only a few venues will be offering it this year it was well-received at the Fork.

In his preview of the new Fork cross-country course, Tremaine Cooper said that he and co-course designer, Capt. Mark Phillips wanted to create a track that would provide a positive final run before the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event in a few weeks. The duo definitely accomplished their goal as all 17 horses who started on the CIC3* track at the Tryon International Equestrian Center came home with clean jumping rounds. Three riders even crossed through the finish line with no time penalties to add to their scores.

The top two places of the Adequan USEA Gold Cup CIC3* at The Fork Horse Trials remained unchanged following the show jumping phase as both Marilyn Little with RF Scandalous and Kim Severson with Cooley Cross Border jumped fault-free rounds. Chris Barnard’s show jumping course in the George Morris Arena at the Tryon International Equestrian Center caused very little trouble for the three-star competitors with 14 of the 19 pairs leaving all of the rails in their cups.

The Advanced entries followed up the smashing rounds of the CIC3*group this afternoon at The Fork. Because there were so many Kentucky hopefuls looking for their last great go before the big event, there were two sizeable Advanced divisions. Boyd Martin and Blackfoot Mystery (Out of Place x True Mystery) took the win in the Advanced A division, and Katie Ruppel and Houdini (Hot Rock x Nancy’s Star) won Advanced B coming out of a tie for the lead after show jumping.
