Larkin Hill is one of our favorite horse trials of the eventing season and this year was no different, with great weather, superb facilities and straightforward yet challenging courses. Kristen Smith and Trident did well their first time at Training level. Mary Louise Ball and Grimaldi had their best dressage test yet, jumped clean in stadium and ate up the cross country course. And at his first horse trial in the USA, Ballinamurra Destiny (Dessie) owned by Doug Nieters and ridden by Kristen Smith, finished 3rd in beginner novice! Great horses, great riders, a great day of competition. On to Old Chatham HT!
