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 Fork has always been a lucky location Jennie Brannigan and Cambalda and this year the streak continued with the pair earning a win in the CIC3* with a picture perfect cross-country round.“Between myself and the people I am friends with, we all seem to do well at this event,” said Brannigan. “They are all really good riders and those are the ones that usually do well [at The Fork].”

Today’s show jumping course proved to be quite influential with all of the FEI divisions’ leaderboards shuffling around. When overnight leader Liz Halliday-Sharp dropped a rail with Deborah Halliday’s Fernhill by Night, the pressure was on Jennie Brannigan and Cambalda (Ping) to jump a clear round. Luckily Ping is known for his show jumping prowess and Nina Gardner’s 13-year-old Irish Sport Horse put in a nearly flawless round to take the lead in The Fork’s CIC3*.

The margin of error is slim in the Adequan USEA Gold Cup and PRO Tour Series CIC3* division at The Fork. Phillip Dutton and Bruce Duchossois’ 8-year-old Irish Sport Horse Mighty Nice, the leaders after dressage, plummeted to 19th place after dropping just two rails in show jumping. Chris Barnard's tough show jumping track significantly shuffled the standings, but with a polished double-clear, Lynn Symansky and her own 10-year-old Thoroughbred Donner moved into the lead.
