For the third year running, Attwood Equestrian Surfaces is delighted to be the title sponsor for the CIC* event. The competition ran from the 24th to the 27th of March at the Carolina Horse Park. The total prize money this year was USD 75,000 and event honored the legacy of Karen Stives.
As always, the event was a resounding success. We were present at the event, and to check out some of the amazing pictures and videos we took, head over to our instagram page.
Our own sponsored rider Caitlin Silliman, an up and coming rider and one for the future, with her horse, Vagabon de Champdoux, participated in the event.
Boyd Martin, another rider closely associated with us was there with his team, and competed in the CIC**, CIC*** and Advanced events, remarked "The Carolina International put on the best event to date in 2016: it was hugely supported, with about 500 horses competing. The cross country course was designed by Ian Stark, who built a new look that caused plenty of havoc among the competitors."
About Carolina International: The Carolina International Organizing Committee was formed to build a world class eventing competition in the Sandhills of North Carolina.
