January 29, 2021 – Wellington, FL – Kent Farrington (USA) and Austria 2, owned by Take the High Road, LLC, set the tone as the first pair to return for the jump-off and could not be caught, making light work of the shortened track to take home top honors in the $37,000 Adequan® WEF Challenge Cup Round 3 on Friday, January 29, at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center (PBIEC) during the 2021 Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF).
Taylor Landstrom and Francesca Guidi Top the EMO Insurance USHJA 3’3” Jumping Seat Medal
Friday morning began with 55 equitation riders competing for the blue ribbon in the EMO Insurance USHJA 3’3” Jumping Seat Medal at Ring 6. The class was held in a California split format with Taylor Landstrom riding Inferno to the Section A first place ribbon and Francesca Guidi piloting Come Monday to the Section B win.
The equitation medal consisted of two rounds, an over-fences phase and a flat test, for the top 10 riders of both Section A and Section B. Landstrom, of Excelsior, MN, and her own Inferno tackled the over-fences phase with ease and earned a score of 87 to put them at the top of the class.
“I picked up my canter and once we found the first jump, the rest of the course fell into place,” described Landstrom. “He knew what his job was, and I did my job, so I couldn’t have been happier.”
