It’s All Alliston In Galway Downs Finale

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.

Temecula, Calif., Nov. 4

Buck Davidson isn’t that excited about winning the dressage at the Galway Downs CCI***. Don’t get him wrong, he’s as proud as ever with his mount, Ballynoe Castle RM, especially considering the conditions the 11-year-old gelding endured today.

Even with his toughest competition entering the arena immediately after his show jumping round with Ballynoe Castle RM, Buck Davidson knew he’d already won the Richland Park CIC***.

Brannigan And Davidson Share The Lead In Richland Park CIC***

Aug. 27, Richland, Mich. 

Jennie Brannigan and Buck Davidson both came to the Richland Park CIC*** with a bit of an axe to grind. Brannigan needed confirmation that the work she’d done with Cambalda since they were eliminated in their four-star debut in June had really bolstered the gelding’s confidence.

When Amy Dragoo, one of our most reliable freelance photographers, sent in her selections for our Behind Barn Doors at Bruce Davidson’s Chesterland (see Aug. 8 Eventing Issue, p. 24), we weren’t surprised by most of what we saw.

There were the rolling, green hills of Chester County, Pa. There were the classic red-and-white Dutch doors on his barn, the old black-and-white photos of famous mounts from decades gone by hanging in his office.

Cornelissen's Smile Shines Bright Atop The Reem Acra FEI World Cup Podium

Given that she’d won all five of her qualifiers for the Reem Acra FEI Dressage World Cup Final, everyone in the sold-out stands in Leipzig, Germany, on freestyle night fully expected Adelinde Cornelissen to stand atop the podium at the end of the evening.

She’d won the Grand Prix test already with 80.95 percent, and her mount Jerich Parzival’s two biggest rivals, Moorlands Totilas and Mistral Hojris, weren’t in attendance. This year’s Final, held April 28-30, was hers for the taking.
