Beezie Madden in 12th place, going to Round 2 of FEI World Cup
Sat, 19 Apr 2014 14:54:53 GMT —
Cazenovia equestrian Beezie Madden is 'clean' in the first round of Saturday's World Cup competition, and will now go into a jumpoff for today's results.
At least 15 horses of the 40 horse field were also faultless, and will jump again today, on a shortened, but higher-fence course.
Madden and her horse Simon's time is slower than the leaders, which means she'll go earlier in the next round, and also meaning she'll have to go as fast as she can and take more risks to stay in the competition.
Madden and her horse Simon are defending champions in the Equestrian World Cup, but her first round at the competiton in Lyon, France on Friday left them in 12th place.
The jumps are big and the course had short, tight turns, and a wide fence followed by a sharp turn resulted in a rail down.
The second round of jumping continues, with the final on Sunday
