Blue Skies And Big Grins: Scenes From The Rebecca Farm Horse Inspections

Jul 18, 2018 - 6:53 PM

Kalispell, Mont.—July 18

The horse inspections at the Event At Rebecca Farm stretched across nearly the entire day as hundreds of pairsfrom the novice and training three-day divisions, the Adequan FEI North American Youth Championships (CCI* and CIC**), and the open FEI divisions (CCI***, CCI** and CCI*)all came forward to present for the ground jury.

In the young rider competition, only one horse (Annah Yoder’s Ern More Cash) was spun, which leaves the Area V CCI* team with a three-rider squad. In the CCI***, Ellen Doughty-Hume’s Sir Oberon was held but then passed on re-inspection.  Eleven pairs will go down centerline Friday in the CCI***, and 12 are entered in the CIC***.
