Lauren Tisbo took top honors in Saturday's $35,000 CSI3* Longines world ranking competition aboard Tequestrian Farms' Jeleena de Muze (Tornedo FCS x Chin Chin), beating a field of 21 international show jumpers for the blue ribbon.

Tisbo had the fastest time around the competitive jump-off, crossing the Longines timers in 43.38 seconds with the 9-year-old Belgian Warmblood. 

"She's a little bit green for her age, so we're just moving her up to the 1.50m level. We're still in the process of trying to go as fast as we can, but still jumping clear to build her confidence. That was the plan: be as competitive as I can for my horse," she commented. 

"I'm a pretty competitive person," she continued. "My trainer luckily reminded me as we were walking in to ride my horse's round, and to do the best I can for her."

Two clear rounds and a jump-off time of 44.41 seconds gave Chloe Reid and Live Oak Plantation's TNT Explosive (Tinka's Boy x Calypso II) a second place finish in Saturday's class. "They always say looking back that there's things you would change. I definitely think I could've been faster the beginning half of the course, but I was really happy how he finished," Reid said. 

Fresh off a win in Friday's $10,000 Waldron Private Wealth 1.40m Power and Speed class, Kady Abrahamson finished third with Abrahamson Equestian's Bugatti (Indoctro x Diamant de Semilly). The last of the three clear jump-off rounds, Abrahamson clocked a jump off time of 48.96.

Tisbo is one of a handful at Live Oak International who are in the running for the upcoming Longines FEI World Cup™ Final, April 11-15, in Paris, France. Sunday's $100,000 Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping Qualifier Grand Prix will make the final determination as it is the last qualifying opportunity. 

"I have a shot, but it's a little bit of a long shot. I have to jump well tomorrow and have a good placing. That's been my focus of this show this week," Tisbo said. "I'm really happy with how my horses are going, so I guess you could say now it's just up to me to keep my head on straight."
