The Fork

In July of 2016, Bromont pulled out from hosting the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG) and in November the FEI announced the Tryon International Equestrian Center as the new hosts. This timeline gave Tryon less than two years to pull together what will be the fourth largest sporting event in the world in 2018. The Mill Spring, N.C. facility is now under construction around the clock, but that didn’t stop them from hosting the WEG Eventing Test Event in the first week of April.

Like yesterday, the time was on the top of everyone’s minds – which isn’t always the case with show jumping. However, Chris Barnard’s show jumping course in the George Morris Arena at the Tryon International Equestrian Center proved to be a test for both the Fork CIC3* and Adequan USEA Gold Cup Advanced competitors.Only seven of the 31 starters jumped clear and inside the time for show jumping in the 2018 World Equestrian Games test event, and watching overnight leader, Phillip Dutton’s ride on Z, many didn’t think he would be one of those.

While the leaderboard is looking very different following the cross-country phase of the Adequan USEA Gold Cup CIC3* at the Fork Horse Trials, there weren’t that many problems on Capt. Mark Phillips’ course – it was just race against the clock. Cross-country master, Phillip Dutton, showed his prowess to shave off the seconds and sits in first, third, and fourth in the division serving as the FEI World Equestrian Games test event.

The dressage for the Fork CIC3*, the FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG) eventing test event and Adequan USEA Gold Cup qualifying competition, finished today with the remaining 17 pairs in the division. There is only one new name in the top three as Kim Severson and Cooley Cross Border moved into second position with a 24.5 – just .2 off from overnight leaders, Marilyn Little and RF Scandalous, a 13-year-old Oldenburg mare (Carry Gold x Richardia) owned by Jacqueline Mars and Phoebe and Michael Manders.

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.
