U.S. Team Eventer & Grand Prix Show Jumper





RF Tabasco Qualifies for Boekelo CCI3*


Frederick, Maryland, USA. September 23, 2013


U.S. Team Eventer Marilyn Little riding Raylyn Farms & Team Demeter's 11 year old Oldenburg Mare RF Demeter  (Rubin Royal x Kanudos X) finished second at the Schenefeld CIC3* this weekend. Completing with a faultless cross country performance, adding just four faults in the stadium for a score of 41.2, Little was the first U.S. rider to compete at the German Championships among a strong field of championship riders ensuring that she would be given no quarter. Lying in third place after dressage and cross country on 37.2 and, despite a rail down, Little was poised for promotion when Andreas Ostholt (So is et), who were in second, lowered some rails. 


Little also finished 12th with Team Tabasco's 13 year old Trakhener gelding  RF Tabasco (Heraldik xx - Titania III x Heling) on 54.0 penalties following a convincing jumping performance that secured them qualification for the Boekelo CCI3* next month.


"I am over the moon with the performances of these horses in their summer and fall competitions", commented Little. "The events and results at Blair Castle (GBR), Breda (NED), and now Schenefeld (GER) have provided a wonderful lead up to each horse's respective fall CCI competition (CCI4* Pau, FRA for Demeter and CCI3* Boekelo, NED for Tabasco). The level of competition at each event has been an honor to be a part of, and with each event I find the horses to be stronger, more confident, and more competitive than at the previous. I am so grateful for the effort and support of the entire Raylyn team of owners, coaches, family, staff and supporters that have made these successes possible. I look forward to the arrival of other U.S. Team riders for the competitions at Boekelo and Pau, and have high hopes for what lies ahead on the playing fields at the next two all-important fall competitions here in Holland and in France."
