Temecula, Calif., Nov. 6
Placing second on your dressage score in a CCI**: check. Winning a CCI*: done. And scoring your first CCI*** victory: oh yeah, did that too.
Those accomplishments were all in a day’s work for James Alliston at Galway Downs. The 27-year-old California-based Brit asserted his dominance at every level, claiming the three-star title aboard India McEvoy’s Jumbo’s Jake and taking seventh on his own Parker II, snagging the runner-up spot in the CCI** with Tivoli, and scoring a surprise win in the one-star with Mojo.
