– Competition at the Military Boekelo CCIO3* came to a close Sunday with two riders of the Land Rover U.S. Eventing Team contesting the show jumping phase. While there were clear rounds, rails were coming down throughout the day over Jos Brinkman’s course. Boyd Martin and Trading Aces were the top finishers for the U.S in the field of 64 combinations that moved on to the final phase of competition.

Martin (Cochranville, Pa.) and Trading Aces LLC’s nine-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding had a lovely round with an unfortunate rail at the C element of the triple, adding four faults to their score. The pair ended the competition with a score of 68.0 to finish in 28th place. The Military Boekelo CCIO3* marked the first time Trading Aces represented the U.S., demonstrating much promise for the future with Martin.

“It was a disappointing result for the U.S. However, the three horses that competed are young, class, talented horses and will benefit in the future from this trip,” commented Martin. “I believe we were a team of quality riders that did not execute at this event. We return home with an understanding of where we came up short. Thank you to the USEF for the opportunity to represent the U.S.”

Elizabeth Halliday-Sharp (East Sussex, United Kingdom) and her own Fernhill By Night also added four faults to their score after having a rail at 4A. She and the 10-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding finished with a score of 91.4 for 52nd place. The pair stepped up to the plate representing the U.S. for the first time in an international team competition, all in Fernhill By Night’s first attempt at the CCI3* level.

In the final leg of the 2013 FEI Nations Cup™ Eventing series, Germany won the team competition with a score of 148.6. The Land Rover U.S. Eventing team finished in seventh place with a score of 1159.40. Great Britain came away with 2013 FEI Nations Cup™ Eventing series title.

New Zealand’s Lizzie Brown and Henton Attorney General took home top honors with a final score of 39.8.
