The Advanced division held dressage on Friday afternoon, where Heather Morris and The Team Express Group’s Charlie Tango took an early lead on a 35.3. Gina Miles and Corie Young’s Contalli Di Revel put the pressure on Morris, but it wasn’t until the final pair, Tamie Smith aboard Kevin Baumgardner’s Dutch Warmblood Wembley, came in and took the lead with a 31.9.
Cross-country took place today as the final phase of the CIC3* competition at Galway Downs in Temecula, Ca. This event was the third leg of the 2016 Adequan USEA Gold Cup Series, of which the finale is the championship at this year’s Nutrena USEA American Eventing Championships in Tryon, NC.
Ian Stark designed a challenging yet confidence boosting cross-country course for the horses and riders, many of which are using this event a preparation for the Rolex Kentucky CCI4* next month. There were many thoughtful combinations and friendly lines, but the pairs had to be accurate and ride forward through Stark’s course.
