Martin Leads the Way for the U.S. at Military Boekelo CCIO3*

RELEASE: October 12, 2013
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: Helen Murray

Boekelo, The Netherlands- The Land Rover U.S. Eventing Team experienced mixed fortunes on Sue Benson’s cross country course on Saturday at the Military Boekelo CCIO3*. As is customary at Boekelo, the Dutch weather and deep going proved extremely influential as the leaderboard saw an utter

shake-up. Following the conclusion of the second phase, Boyd Martin and Trading Aces lead the way for the United States.

Martin (Cochranville, Pa.) and Trading Aces LLC’s nine-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding produced a steady clear round on Saturday. As the third-to-last combination to set-out on the testing track the Richland Park CIC3* winners encountered extremely deteriorated footing and therefore collected 18 time faults. The pair heads into the final show jumping phase on a score of 64 in 35th place.

The first U.S. combination out on course was Elizabeth Halliday-Sharp (East Sussex, United Kingdom) and her own Fernhill By Night. The10-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding was enjoying a successful trip in his first CCI3* but a late run-out at 21C meant the combination would collect 20 jumping penalties and 15.6 time faults. They stand on an overnight total of 87.4 in 54th place.

Lauren Kieffer (Middleburg, Va.) and Team Rebecca LLC’s 11-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare Veronica were also representing the U.S. in team competition at Boekelo. The pair were enjoying a nearly foot-perfect round until they also ran into trouble at 21 resulting in a fall at the A element and elimination for Kieffer.

The U.S. stands in ninth place in the Team standings following the cross country on a score of 1151.4. Germany maintained the lead and head into the show jumping on a score of 124.6.

New Zealand’s Lizzie Brown and Henton Attorney General lead the individual standings on a score of 35.8.
