Fairburn, Ga., Sept. 9
After an elegant dressage test to top the open intermediate division of the Nutrena/U.S. Eventing Association American Eventing Championships yesterday, Kadi Eykamp and Double Rivers Really Cool cruised around the Ritch Temple-designed cross-country course, cementing a nearly 9-point lead.
“Cross-country is just his thing,” said Eykamp of her 6-year-old Canadian Thoroughbred gelding. “I had to slow him down a little so that we didn’t go too fast, but it’s just such a lovely galloping course that making time is something you can do.”
