Cheryl and Calina's Cross-Country Recap - The Top Ten

Despite the miserable weather and tornado warnings earlier this week, cross-country day was ultimately bright and sunny, with a light breeze. The footing was very good, though heavy toward the end of the day. There were numerous refusals and run-out, particularly at the beginning of the day, and even a few rider falls. Fortunately, all equines and humans are safe and sound, and a look at the scoreboard shows that the problems were spread out throughout the course. That said, I think its safe to say that the hollow claimed more than its fair share of victims. Fence 5, the first water, also caused numerous problems and lots of ‘peaking’.

The Top Ten Horse/Rider combinations after an exciting and grueling day of cross-country are:

1.    Mary King and Kings Temptress (47.7)

2.    Mary King and Fernhill Urco (49.7)

3.    Clayton Fredericks and Be My Guest (53.0)

4.    Sinead Halpin and Manoir de Carneville (53.1)

5.    Hannah Sue Burnett and St Barths (53.3)

6.    William Fox-Pitt and Neufs des Coeurs (54.0)

7.    Oliver Townend and ODT Sonas Rovatio (58.2)

8.    Jessica Phoenix and Exponential (60.0)

9.    Boyd Martin and Remington XXV (61.4)

10.    Kim Severson and Tipperary Liadhnan (62.5)
