Bromont, August 3, 2018 – American rider Samantha Kasowitz won the Modified Grand Prix event with Charlie in the second week of the International Bromont.
A convolute course
The course, designed by Canadian Michel Vaillancourt, meant that the rider-horse pairs had to use the entire ring: with a time allowed of 78 seconds, 13 obstacles for 15 efforts, time was a factor in this Modified Grand Prix at 1.45 m.
The short turn towards the third obstacle, an oxer, as well the triple combination halfway through were two decisive tests for qualifying to the jump-off. Of the 21 pairs participating, only seven made it to the second round, and only three were able to execute a double clear round.
