Montgomery and Loughan Glen Are Well Ahead At Great Meadow International CICO***

The Plains, Va.—July 9   

All eyes were on Clark Montgomery as he and Loughan Glen cantered down centerline this afternoon at the Land Rover Great Meadow International CICO***.

As one of a handful of U.S. pairs that are capable of scoring in the 30s in dressage, expectations were high for Montogmery and “Glen.” Add to it that it’s their first event back on U.S. soil in several years and that they’re anchoring the U.S. Nations Cup team, and Montgomery admitted there was a lot of pressure.

One To Watch: Ben Way Balances A Career And Four-Star Eventing

The first and only time British eventer Ben Way came to the United States was a few years ago to ski in Colorado, so he was in for quite the surprise when he stepped off the plane in Virginia this week.

But the heat and humidity are no worry to the 27-year-old rider, who brought new ride Willows Tipster to the inaugural FEI Nations Cup at the Land Rover Great Meadow International.

“The horses have coped amazingly well. They have fans in the stables, and we work them early in the morning,” he said.

An Unlikely Eventer, Canso De La Mancha Is Making Amateur Marie-Gabrielle Bronsard’s Dreams Come True

When Marie-Gabrielle Bronsard first saw Canso De La Mancha in a field near Montreal, she didn’t see much.

A 2-year-old Thoroughbred-Paint cross who was just a companion to a warmblood foal, the gelding didn’t seem like the sporthorse type.

Looking for a project for any discipline, Bronsard took him home as a project horse, and he’s turned out to be more than she ever would have expected.

This weekend, they contested their first one-star at the Jaguar Land Rover Bromont CCI, and are currently in 11th place after jumping a double-clear cross-country round on Saturday.
