2014 Galway Downs CCI

2014 Galway Downs CCI

Follow along all weekend as the Chronicle's Lisa Slade brings you the action from the Galway Downs CCI.

Buck Davidson traveled from the East Coast, Liz Halliday came home from England to California, and Hawley Bennett-Awad's first big-time mount, Livingstone, retired in an emotional ceremony.
What does it feel like to earn your first three-star win on a horse you bred yourself? A 15-year-old horse who, until a few weeks ago, you thought would never do another CCI? Barbara Crabo can’t tell you—at least not exactly.
Though Buck Davidson won the Jersey Fresh CCI*** with Copper Beech last May, he still had questions about the horse.
Notoriously busy East Coast professional riders Boyd Martin and Buck Davidson both brought just one horse each for this weekend’s Galway Downs. But they’re once again proving they’re masters of quality as well as quantity, and at the end of the dressage, those two are tied in the CCI*** on Trading Aces and Copper Beach, respectively, with 44.4 penalties.
This California rider has already surpassed her dreams by completing the Rolex Kentucky CCI****; now she's headed back to Galway Downs hungry for a win.
Check out a gallery from the first horse inspection for the CCI divisions.
