Tryon Fall III competition concluded on Sunday, October 8, at Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC), with the completion of the $35,000 Horseware® Ireland 1.45m Classic CSI2*, which saw five combinations take an equal tie for first place due to inclement weather in region, which forced the cancellation of the jump-off. Each of the five riders who finished with a clear trip in the first round elected to conclude the class in a five-way tie instead of continuing to the jump-off round.

Kristen Vanderveen (USA), and Bull Run's Divine Fortune, a 2009 Dutch Warmblood mare (Padinus x Amhilavsca Fortuna), owned by Bull Run Jumpers Six, LLC, completed their trip in 75.56 seconds, around the track laid by course designer Richard Jeffery (GBR). Luis Pedro Biraben (ARG), and his own Eres Tu, a 2009 Warmblood gelding, stopped the timers in 75.07 seconds, while Samuel Parot (CHI), aboard VDL Aberlino, 2005 Dutch Warmblood gelding (Corland x Goberlina) ended the day on 75.09 seconds. 

Santiago Lambre (MEX) and Aurora De Alba's Casino N, a 2007 Swedish Warmblood gelding (Nicky x Ahorn), also finished the first round track with a clear effort, stopping the timers in 76.01 seconds. Tracy Fenney (USA), and MTM Como No, a 2009 Holsteiner stallion (Cornet Obolensky x Thamara M), owned by MTM Farm, completed their ride in 75.87 seconds. 

"I was lucky," commented Vanderveen. "I did get to ride toward the beginning of the class and we did obviously get the weather at the end of the class. The five of us chose not to jump-off. It was a fun class for me because this horse is a newer one that I just recently imported, and she's only eight-years-old. I just started moving her up into the FEI classes. She has really stepped right up. This is her second clear round that she has put in pretty quickly right-off the bat, so I'm really excited about her."

Vanderveen will continue competing the mare at TIEC for the remainder of the fall circuit. "She is a sale horse," said Vanderveen. "I don't know if I will get to hold on to her long enough to see her full potential and just how far she could go with me, but this whole month we will be showing here, so she'll keep getting the full range of classes. After that, I plan to continue to develop her throughout the Winter Equestrian Festival, and then look to really sell her or see what she can handle as a nine-year-old."
