Yesterday, Ice Horse sponsored rider Buck Davidson and Ballynoe Castle RM took a lead score of 47.7 at the Plantation Field Horse Trials. They jumped one of 14 double clear rounds in the CIC3* show jumping competition.
“He felt awesome,” Davidson said. “I’m not sure there’s anyone who jumped better today. It felt like he was up as high as the standards from fence one.”
Davidson has said they have aerated the footing for today’s cross country event, to account for the especially dry conditions.
“There’s such good, old turf here and such good grass cover, and it’s not used for anything else,” Davidson said. “When I galloped today, you couldn’t hear it. The ground is beautiful, and it’s not that long of a course.”
We wish Buck the best of luck and will keep you updated on the results.
