Little Stays In Front At MARS Great Meadow International CCI4*-S

Aug 22, 2020 - 9:03 PM

The Plains, Va.—Aug. 22

A pop-up thunderstorm drenched riders in the CCI3*-S who were show jumping at the MARS Great Meadow International this afternoon, leading to a two-hour delayed start for the CCI4*-S division.

Thirty-two of the 68 pairs were able to jump around Chris Barnard’s show jumping course before dark, so the division will finish tomorrow’s remaining riders starting at 7:30 a.m.

Marilyn Little and RF Scandalous were able to finish their round, and they’ll stay in the lead heading into tomorrow’s cross-country on 21.8. Kim Severson and Cooley Cross Border were third after dressage, and they jumped clear as well, so they’ll stay in that position or better as they wait for second-placed Will Coleman and Off The Record to jump tomorrow morning.

Of the 32 to jump tonight, 23 jumped double-clear.

Check out a photo gallery of the action.
