Event horse prospect Commando became an internet sensation when a video of one of his first cross-country schools from 2015 went viral. In the video you can watch as Commando eagerly approaches the ditch, only to become instantly skeptical. After some persuading from his rider, Rose Agard, he finally decides to go for it very enthusiastically.
Helen Bouscaren and her own Thoroughbred gelding, Ben claimed victory today in the Adequan USEA Gold Cup Advanced division at Woodside International. After the conclusion of the Adequan USEA Gold Cup CIC3* division yesterday, just four combinations competed for the Advanced Division Title today.
Bouscaren and Ben scored a 38.2 after dressage on Friday, putting them into third place behind Dana Chase and Andrea Nielson after day 1. However, Nielson had an unfortunate fall on cross-country on Saturday, causing elimination, and Chase picked up 20 jump penalties on course. Both Bouscaren and Kim Liddell jumped around clean with just a few time penalties, bumping them both up in to the top two spots after cross-country.
Ian Stark’s CIC3* cross-country course was testing to all horse and rider combinations with just two double clear rounds today in the Adequan USEA Gold Cup division at Woodside International. James Alliston and Parker were the first pair around the course clear and inside the time, followed by Mary Burke and Prince William.
Overnight leaders Frankie Thieriot Stutes and The Chatwin Group’s German Warmblood, Chatwin had a great ride around the CIC3* cross-country course. Unfortunately, they picked up 7.6 time faults, knocking them down to second place after Mary Burke and Prince William galloped around double clear to clinch the win on a 48.0.

Frankie Thieriot Stutes and The Chatwin Group’s German Warmblood, Chatwin charged into the early lead after an accurate dressage test this afternoon in the Adequan USEA Gold Cup CIC3* division at Woodside International. Laying down a 41.8 on the flat, the pair held a nearly three-point lead over second place contenders Jordan Lindstedt and her own Hanoverian gelding, Revitavet Capato, who earned a 44.7. Revitavet Capato’s test was fluid and lovely, and while Chatwin looked a bit more lathargic than in recent events, Thieriot Stutes was able to ride a very controlled and correct test to clinch the leading score.
Willow Draw in Weatherford, TX (Area V) is sharing two important announcements:
Eleven 4-year-olds and seven 5-year-olds competed in the 2016 USEA Young Event Horse (YEH) West Coast Championship at Woodside International in Woodside, Calif. yesterday. In YEH classes, horses are required to perform a dressage test, and then immediately be stripped of their tack to be judged in conformation. Then, the horses perform a jumping and galloping test, and they end on a cumulative score.

The new Modified level, which was created as a stepping stone between the Training and Preliminary levels, will be making its debut in USEA recognized competitions beginning in 2017. Many have argued that the step up from Training to Preliminary is one of the largest in the sport, and introduces many new challenges including fence height, fence width and increased complexities in all three phases. In an effort to combat this looming move up, the USEA Board of Governors approved the new Modified level, which will be officially offered on December 1, 2016.
