While the downpour of rain damped the grounds of Ohio’s Brave Horse Show, it didn’t dampen the competitive spirit of the horses and riders who came out to compete. On Thursday, October 5, 2017, the Split Rock Jumping Tour’s Columbus International CSI3* hosted the $35,000 Hollow Creek Farm 1.45m Speed Cup, won by USA’s Andrew Ramsay and the ten-year-old Belgian Warmblood mare Cocq A Doddle (Tolan R x Niagara).
The duo finished in a leading time of 60.17s to secure the lump sum of the winner’s purse. They’ve been partnered together for the past year and a half, securing multiple top placing’s across the country.
“She is a fantastic mare and she is a fighter,” said Ramsay. “She gets out there and she is quick, she just looks for the next fence. She’s a really enjoyable horse to ride, eager and has plenty of energy. Our plan on the first day was to let her go a bit, let her get confident, and she really delivered.”
Venezuela’s Emanuel Andrade and Bon Jovi finished in 2nd place, clear in a time of 60.44s. USA’s Peter Wylde and Aimee finished clear in 62.1s for 3rd place.
