Stats: age 44, Kalispell, Mont.
My Sedona: ch. m., 16 hands, 13 years, U.S.-bred Thoroughbred (Starbird Glacier—Past Noon, Sauce Boat), owned by Cindy Marvin.
Last year, this pair was sixth in the Bromont CCI*** (Que.), ninth in the Galway Downs CIC*** (Calif.), and 10th in the CIC*** at The Event At Rebecca Farm (Mont.). This spring they were fifth in a division of advanced at Twin Rivers Winter (Calif.).
Jimmy’s Prediction: Jil will use her Olympic experience to produce an acceptable dressage test from this mare, and that number will be their final score. This mare is a good athlete, Jil is a marvelous rider, and they have been going well this spring.
