The 2012 Spruce Meadows ‘Continental’ Tournament wrapped up today, capping an exciting week of competition! 48 horse/rider combinations took to the field for the $60,000 Investor’s Group Cup. The group was narrowed down to 10 combinations over the 485 meter course, with 15 jumping efforts. Kent Farrington (USA) added another Spruce Meadows win to his list, with double clear rounds and a jump off time of 46.70. With 4 major wins in the past 2 weeks here at Spruce Meadows, Farrington is pleased with his results. “I’m off to a great start” he commented, “My horses are going really well, I think I have some nice horses that are really ready to go”.
It was an exciting day for Americans; the 2012 US Olympic team was named, after two of the Olympic trials were held during the Spruce Meadows Summer Series. McLain Ward, Rich Fellers, Beezie Madden and Reed Kessler will be riding under the Stars and Stripes during the 2012 Olympics in London. This is a first for both Fellers and Kessler, while Madden and Ward have both been to the Olympics twice before.
The pros get a week off at Spruce Meadows while the Amateurs saddle up for the 2012 ‘Skyliner’, which begins on Wednesday, June 20th.
