Boekelo Cross-country

Both Remi and Otis galloped around the Boekelo cross-country course clear. Remi had a hard time with the muddy going and copped 16 time penalties to drop from 8th to 32nd place; it’s a tight, competitive field and any faults are costly. Otis really stepped up and showed that he’s a horse for the future: he added only 4.4 time faults and moved up to 23rd place from 55th after dressage. It was a tough day for Team USA, and both Mike and Tami rode well but are out of the running.

With 110 horses entered and 200,000 spectators Boekelo is a truly awesome event and a showcase for the sport.

Also have a look at the USEF website to follow the US eventing squad’s adventures in Europe, with lots of great photos and videos.
