Canada’s Samantha Buirs take fourth place
The competition was fierce for the final legs of the FEI CSI3* Silver Tour on Saturday afternoon. With a jump-off of ten, it was Lindsay Archer and Rhys Farm’s 10-year-old BWP Gelding, Jarpur, who topped the field in the $25,000 1.45m Silver Tour Classic.
The FEI competition concluded with twenty-nine competitors in the $25,000 1.45m Silver Tour Classic. Ten competitors, representing Israel, Canada, Sweden, and the USA, crossed the timers without accruing any faults, the makings of an exciting jump-off. Rails and refusals plagued the beginning of the list, when eighteen-year-old Mckenna Norris and MTN Equine’s Cristall Colorado provided a superb clear round in 42.05 seconds.
The next rider in was Archer, who was clean and quick in 39.82 seconds to jump into the lead. Last to go, Shawn Casady and VDL Stud’s Doraindo, stopped the clock in 40.85 seconds to take the second-place finish. As the only other double clear, Norris earned third place, and Canada’s Samantha Buirs was fourth aboard Aura.
