Chris Barnard’s show jumping track was a tricky final test for the Buckeye Nutrition CCI4*L riders at the MARS Tryon International Three-Day Event, and it was Boyd Martin aboard Christine Turner’s Tsetserleg who would emerge as the winner at the conclusion of competition.
Over a track full of related distances that saw 39% of the field jump clear, Boyd used the experience on his two previous rides in the division to navigate a clear round with the 13-year-old Trakehner gelding, who carried his statistical highest probability of a clear round. This pair added 1.6 time penalties on Capt. Mark Phillips’ cross country yesterday and now finish their weekend on a score of 28.1. This is the fourth international win for “Thomas”, who was the USEF National Champion at Kentucky last year as well as the individual and team gold medalist at the 2018 Pan American Games.
