The Chetwood Cup was a success. Three scratches allowed the alternate riders to participate. A crowd gathered at Hengstacer Farms before post time to enjoy music organized by Floradine. As ale and pipeweed were passed around, the judges walked the race course in preparation for the main event.
The riders were:
Androsir on bay Tuland
Calatharan on blonde sorrel Flapjack
Dreothas on blonde sorrel Warmane
Flexxo on blood bay Bilberry
Guldrion on springtime horse Thaw
Isaewyn on dark chestnut Riverfoot
Narania on horse lord steed Swiftfoot
Rosaliee on Dunland horse Erisador
Toramond on white-clad horse of the gap Winter
Twolegs on Mathom Society horse Mirth
And they're off in the Chetwood Cup...
The riders are off to a strong start heading for the gate marking the first checkpoint...
Approaching the ruins, several horses toward the outside following the fence line, here comes the high log jump...
The horses are galloping through the fields toward the dangerous cliff drop, already several riders are pulling ahead...
Several horses have been injured and fall to the back of the pack, the lead riders set a challenging pace coming into the back stretch...
Riders urge their horses over the fence jumps and toward the final turn, they're coming into view at the finish line...
Calatharan and Isaewyn are neck and neck... Guldrion and Androsir are pressing their horses for more speed...
They have crossed the finish line with a thunder of hooves! The judges will confer now to make a final determination.
