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***. Davidson and “Reggie” topped the division on their dressage score, 43.3, and finally won out in the tie he’d been holding with Jennie Brannigan and Cambalda since Thursday.

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.

It had been almost a year since Selena O’Hanlon and Colombo had posted a double-clear show jumping round, so that in itself felt like victory enough when they left the arena at the Richland Park CIC*** today, Aug. 29.

Nate Chambers is up against six horse-and-rider combinations short-listed for this fall’s Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, but he kept cool under pressure today at the Richland Park CIC***. Chambers and Rolling Stone II beat out those four-star challengers and plenty of other experienced pairs in the dressage on Thursday (45.9), and they maintained their lead today, Aug. 28, with a double-clear cross-country round in Richland, Mich.
