Mr Cruise Control, by Cruising

Thirty-three horses moved onto the CCI4* show jumping after the trot up. Andrew Hoy and Rutherglen, who were sitting in fourth place overnight, withdrew before the final phase, as did Constantin Van Rijckevorsel and Goodwins Reef. All other horses passed the final horse inspection, which is impressive considering the toll cross country took yesterday. Rails came down all around the show jumping course, which isn’t surprising considering how grueling Capt. Mark Phillips’ course proved to be. Only nine horse and rider pairs managed to deliver double clear show jumping trips. Marilyn Little and RF Demeter pulled one rail at the middle element of the triple combination toward the end of the course to finish in seventh place on 57.5. Demi jumped really well and looks to have recovered well after the cross country. MORE from Eventing Nation…
