Claiming an early lead in Thursday’s $38,700 FEI 1.45m two-phase, Daniel Bluman (ISR) proved uncatchable aboard quick-footed Cachemire De Braize; the pair sliced and diced their way to victory over Alan Wade’s (IRL) 16-effort course at the 2023 Old Salem Farm Spring Horse Shows, posting the fastest double-clear score in 26.47 seconds. 

The Old Salem Farm Spring Horse Shows are one of the premier stops on the nation’s hunter-jumper horse show circuit, offering a full schedule of world-class competition May 9-14 and May 16-21 that features the nation’s best in equestrian sport.

Sixty-three horse-and-rider combinations stepped into the Old Salem Farm International Arena to kick off the week’s CSI4* competition, with Bluman and Over The Top Stables LLC’s 11-year-old Selle Français gelding ultimately clinching the win. After helping Team USA claim an FEI Nations Cup win in California over the weekend, McLain Ward gave it his all with speed specialist Catoki but couldn’t quite make Bluman’s blistering time. Ward and Marilla Van Beuren’s 14-year-old Westphalian gelding stopped the clock in 27.06 seconds to land in second place.
