Phoenix and Pavarotti Are In Tune At The Fork CIC***

Norwood, N.C.—April 8

It almost seemed a foregone conclusion that CIC*** dressage leaders Maya Black and Doesn’t Play Fair would maintain their winning margin at The Fork today, as top horse after top horse came behind them, but failed to best their score of 41.2 from yesterday.

Elinor MacPhail came close and tied Black, then during the final group of riders, Canadian Jessica Phoenix and Pavarotti cantered down centerline and laid down a solid test to take over the lead on 39.2.

Springer and Arthur Stay On Top At Carolina International CIC***

Raeford, N.C.—March 26   

The last time Allison Springer and Arthur galloped around the CIC*** at the Cloud 11-Gavilan North Carolina International, their weekend ended early with Springer sitting on the ground stunned after the notoriously spooky gelding shied at something in the galloping lanes between fences.

But this year they returned, took a hold of the lead and never looked back, taking home the win with a fantastic cross-country ride over Ian Stark’s new track.

Arthur Pulls Ahead At Carolina International CIC***

Raeford, N.C. – March 25

Allison Springer’s Arthur is known to be spooky, but she thinks perhaps he’s slightly mellowed in his older age.

Now 17, the gelding kept his focus more than usual today, delivering a double clear show jumping round over Marc Donovan’s course at the Cloud 11-Gavilan North Carolina International CIC*** to inch into the lead.

It's Tight At The Top of the Carolina International CIC***

March 24—Raeford, N.C.

After two days of dressage at the Cloud 11-Gavilan North Carolina International CIC*** the 77-horse leader board is packed tight towards the top, with a three-way tie for first.

Allison Springer was first down centerline this morning on her veteran 17-year-old partner Arthur, hoping to top yesterday’s leader Ryan Wood, who scored a 44.1 on Powell.

Despite entering the ring late when she couldn’t hear the judge’s signal and a few spooks from the gelding, Springer and Arthur still scored a 43.4.

Throwback Thursday: Denise Rath And Her Horse Of A Lifetime Excelled At Southern Pines

Whatever event Denise Rath showed up at 25 years ago, she got people talking. If she trotted up centerline on a fancy white horse, you probably didn’t stand a chance. 

Rath’s “horse of a lifetime,” Galliard, has more wins to his name than not on his U.S. Eventing Assocation record, including two at the Southern Pines Horse Trials in Raeford, N.C., in the always competitive advanced division in the '90s.

One To Watch: Eliza Farren And Bantry Bay's Dublin Want Your Cheers At The Carolina International

When you see Eliza Farren and Bantry Bay’s Dublin gallop by on cross-country this weekend at the Cloud 11-Gavilan North LLC Carolina International CIC*** (N.C.), make sure to give them a loud cheer.

Farren and her Connemara-Thoroughbred cross will be tackling Ian Stark’s track on their way to the Rolex Kentucky CCI****, and “Dublin” thrives on the atmosphere of big events.

“He’s definitely a cool horse to sit on and loves his job and eats it all up. The more he hears people cheer the better he goes,” said Farren.

Maven, The Comeback Queen

There’s a reason Lauren DeNeve has a special name for the people who help take care of her horse Maven.

“We call all of her help Maven’s Minions,” said DeNeve. “We let her do whatever she wants. She likes to knock people around, but when I’m on her back, she and I have a really good rapport.”

The 20-year-old Cleveland Bay-Thoroughbred mare has been retired a few times throughout her career, but she always seems to come back, and the former carriage horse is still going strong after being brought out of retirement again last year.
