U.S. dressage team second in Aachen Nations Cup

AACHEN, Germany--The U.S. Dressage team was leading after the Grand Prix, the first round of the Nations Cup in Aachen, but Germany came back strong in the second competition, the Grand Prix Special, to win the gold medal with the U.S. taking the silver medal on Saturday, July 21 at the World Equestrian Festival CHIO Aachen.

Kasey Perry glass dubletaa18brinkman7 21d 4381 largeKasey Perry-Glass on Goerklintgaards DubletUnder the leadership of Chef d’Equipe Robert Dover, the U.S. team of Laura Graves, Adrienne Lyle, Kasey Perry-Glass, and Steffen Peters produced a final score of 459.371, just 4.98 points behind the German team.

In the Grand Prix, Germany's top rider, Isabell Werth, had a bad day on Emilio and ultimately landed in 17th place, which left the path clear for the USA and giving the win to Laura Graves on Verdades.

But then in the Grand Prix Special, it was Graves who had an uncharacteristically bad day on Verdades as he spooked at a camera and ended on a score of 74.085, while Werth came back with a 79.128 to clinch the win for Germany.

“Aachen is one of the best competitions in the world, and there is a ton of learning to be done here,” said Duvander. “Every time you go to Aachen, you learn. The competition is very tough; the best judges are always here, and the course is unique in the way that you have to jump in the big stadium. The cross-country course is highly technical and very fast. People want to take a risk and go fast. It is a high risk when you go fast. When you go slow, it is safer.”

"The first year, 2015, I was champion on Eagle and reserve on Dashing," said Brown. "The second year, Cupido was champion and Eagle was reserve."

"The last year, I fell off in the handy," said Brown. "I was wearing a tight gold wristwatch, and I landed funny. I broke my wrist and was off for eight weeks. I didn't start showing again until Kentucky. I was a freaky moment."

"Summer Brandywine has always been a tremendous show for me," said Brown.

Will Coleman wins individual at Great Meadow Eventing 3* while Great Britain won the team competition

THE PLAINS, Va.--Will Coleman on Off the Record won the individual championship at the Great Meadow International CICO3*, but Great Britain prevailed in the team competition, with Canada second and the U.S. third.

Will Coleman on Off the Record USEALeslie Mintz PhotoWill Coleman on Off the Record at the tricky brush (Photo by Leslie Mintz Photo)Following the dressage and show jumping phases of the event, the leaderboard looked very different after the cross-country as Mike Etherington-Smith’s course shook up the overnight standings.

Clear rounds were few and far between (only 16) with double clear rounds even rarer – just five of the 40 horses who left the start box crossed the finish line inside the time of 6:33.

In the end it was Off the Record, a 9-year-old competing in just his second CIC3* who bested many more experienced horses.

“I think he genuinely is a horse who runs better when he goes out and has a crack at it,” said Coleman about Off The Record. “I would be lying if I said I wasn’t paying a little bit of attention to the scores, and when I saw that maybe there was an opening it was probably a bit easier to let him run. He likes to go like so I would say that is a bit of his style to kind of go hard.”

Coleman got “Timmy” from Richard Sheane of Cooley Sport Horses as a 4-year-old and has patiently brought him along since then.

All of his talent is so God-given, there's very little to train on him so to speak.

Ryan Wood won the $20,000 Preliminary Essex at the MARS Essex Horse Trials


FAR HILLS, N.J.--Australia's Ryan Wood, who lives in West Grove, Pa., won in the $20,000 Preliminary Essex at the Essex Horse Trials on Saturday, June 23.

Ryan Wood on Ruby Photo by impack studioRyan Wood on Ruby (Photo by i(mpack) studio)Riding Ruby, owned by Summit Sporthorses Ltd. of Ringoes, N.J., Wood led from start to finish, going clear in both cross country and show jumping to finish on their dressage score of 27.70.

"This event is phenomenal," said Wood. "This was my first time here, and I can't wait to come back. I will be promoting it to everyone in Pennsylvania. It means a lot to win here and to win for Ilona English on her homebred horse. To come to Essex and take out the top division and win the silver cup is very special."

Wood had three horses in the Preliminary Essex, and he needed every one of them to secure his victory.

"I was lucky to have two practices on the course before piloting Ruby around," said Woos. "I was a victim of a rail on each of my other horses. It was interesting to see the rails coming down. The first jump looked like the softest one on the course, but it came down more than any other jump, and the treble looked tough and it jumped better than any other combination on the track. It was all very well thought out. Chris Barnard is a master at designing show jumping tracks."
