The CCI* division just wrapped up here in Kentucky. With multiple rails falling in the Top 10, the top 3 positions were quite different than yesterday. As everyone stated earlier in the week – this was definitely not a dressage competition.
1st – Nicole Doolittle & Tops (48.1) of Area III
Nicole started the competition in 2nd place and finished on that great score. She moved into the lead yesterday and kept it today, with a solid clear round under pressure to be a double gold medalist here at NAJYRC 2013.
2nd – Ann O’Neal Pevahouse & Don Bosco (54.4) of Area V
Ann O’Neal moved up an impressive 12 spots over the weekend. She moved up from 14th after dressage and added nothing over the last 2 days of competition. Her clear round today moved her up from 7th overnight to the silver medal position.
3rd – April Simmonds & Impressively Done (54.9) of Ontario, Canada
Another impressive climb up the leaderboard, April sat in 13th after dressage, added 1.2 time penalties cross-country yesterday and a clear round moved her up from 8th overnight to earning the bronze medal.
Huge congratulations to all the medalists and riders in this division.
