Buck Davidson was all about the scoring predictions this weekend and once again he was right, knowing he could have a little bit of time on Ian Stark’s cross-country course and still bring home the blue ribbon. This is the second time that Davidson and Carl and Cassandra Segal’s 15-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding, Ballynoe Castle RM have won the Adequan USEA Gold Cup CIC3* at Richland Park, having previously being named champions in 2011.

A little less than half of the Adequan USEA Gold Cup CIC3* jumped clear over Marc Donovan’s show jump course today at Richland Park H.T., and the top four riders kept all the rails in the cup to maintain their placings. While the course seemed deceptively simply with related lines just snaking back and forth across the field, the terrain and distances kept things interesting. Donovan truly does try to set the riders up for success, and Emily Beshear said that the footing felt great and the horses were jumping well out of the grass.

With five horses in the Adequan USEA Gold Cup CIC3* (not to mention the two in the CCI2* and two in the Advanced), Buck Davidson kept quite busy today at Richland Park in Richland, Mich. Before scores were even posted for the CIC3*, Davidson accurately guessed the placing order of his rides, although his prediction for his longtime partner and favorite horse, Ballynoe Castle RM to be 20 points in the lead wasn’t quite spot on!

Double-clear cross-country rounds at Millbrook Horse Trials are few and far between, but Colleen Rutledge and her homebred Clydesdale/Thoroughbred Covert Rights blazed around Tremaine Cooper's course to become the new leaders in the Adequan USEA PRO Tour Series Advanced division."CR had a great run today at Millbrook. It's exactly the run that I wanted to have before heading overseas," Colleen said. "He was absolutely locked on to the fences. He made my job incredibly easy for being in the right place at the right time for every fence."
