“The 2016 Adequan FEI North American Junior and Young Riders Championship, presented by Gotham North, wrapped up today at the Colorado Horse Park. All horses presented for the CH-J* and CICY2* final horse inspection were accepted this morning, and Chris Barnard’s show jumping course later proved to be influential in the final standings.
Shelby Brost, 18, and her 13-year-old Thoroughbred mare Crimson were the CH-J* individual bronze medal winners last year. They returned to NAJYRC representing Canada once again this year at the two-star level and had a perfect weekend. They scored a 50.2 in dressage with family there to support them. They were double clear on cross country and today produced one of only four double clear show jumping rounds in the CICY2*.
Shelby and Crimson were the only horse and rider pair in the division to finish on their dressage score to win individual gold. Shelby also earned a team silver medal alongside her Ontario/Alberta teammates April Simmonds and Impressively Done, Jamie Kellock and Don’t Blink and Emma Green and Raniki” (Eventing Nation By Jul 31)
