First Horse Inspection Kicks Off 2020's Sole CCI5*-L At Pau

Oct 21, 2020 - 2:39 PM

Pau, France – Oct. 21

With the COVID-19 pandemic raging across the world, six of the seven CCI5*-Ls have been canceled, including what was to be the inaugural Maryland Five-Star in the United States this month.

As a result, the Pau start list is slightly longer this year, with 48 entries, but many of the world’s top eventers are missing. Due to the many travel restrictions in place, all the U.S. athletes opted to stay closer to home. Ten countries are represented though, including Great Britain, which has the most entries at 23.

Notable pairs this weekend include Australia’s Chris Burton and Graf Liberty, Great Britain’s Alex Bragg and Zagreb, reigning World Champion Ros Canter on Zenshera, and last year’s Pau winners Tom McEwen and Toledo De Kerser.

New Zealand’s Tim and Jonelle Price will be busy this weekend, with Tim on three rides, Ringwood Sky Boy, Wesko and Xavier Faer, and Jonelle with Faerie Dianimo and Grovine De Reve. France has 10 pairs entered, including past Pau winner Maxime Livio on Vitorio Du Montet.

Dressage will begin Thursday (7 a.m. EST) and continue Friday (2:30 a.m. EST).
