Courtney and Who’s a Star made the drive up the New Jersey Turnpike to compete in their first CCI 3* (Advanced Three Day Event). The pair put in a good dressage test, placing in the top ten, but did not quite match some of their recent dressage performances.
In keeping with the standards for a CCI 3*, the cross country course was nearly 10 minutes long (over 50% longer than for a typical Advanced Horse Trials.) Courtney and Tag jumping clear with the 5th fastest time to move up to 4th place.
They saved their best performance for Sunday’s Stadium Jumping, as they were only one of two double clear rounds, moving up again to finish in 3rd.
