It was a great day two of the Spruce Meadows 'National' CSI5*, presented by Rolex for Kent Farrington of the United States. Since an unfortunate fall earlier this year that resulted in a severely broken leg, Farringtonhas been working to get back in the saddle and back to number one in the world.

A tough track was laid out  for the PwC Cup had only three riders post clear rounds to move forward into the jump-off. Enrique Gonzalez (MEX), Eric Lamaze (CAN) and Kent Farrington were the only three riders to make it into the jump-off. Gonzalez was up first and put the pressure on posting a clean jump-off round. Lamaze followed with an incredibly quick time of 37.92 but with one rail it was not good enough for top spot.

Last to go, Farrington had to be clean and fast. His mount Jasper (Heartbreaker x Wega van Gestelhof), the nine year old Belgian Warmblood stallion, stepped up to the challenge and the duo posted a quick clear with a time of 40.75 to take the lead. "I think he's a really special horse, I have high hopes for him," commented Farrington on Jasper who he has only had the reins for six months.
