Buck Davidson returns to capture his crown at
The 2016 Event at Rebecca Farm Davidson sweeps CCI3* and CCI2*
KALISPELL, Mont. (July 24, 2016)—Buck Davidson finally
broke his string of prior second place finishes at The Event at Rebecca Farm with dual victories. Show jumping today in the CCI3*, he piloted Carl Siegel and Sherrie Martin’s 10-year-old Irish Sport Horse, Copper Beach, to a flowing clear round over Chris Barnard’s iconic course.
Going into the arena, Davidson stood second behind Hannah Sue Burnett on Under Suspection, a Holsteiner owned by Mary Ann Ghadban. Davidson finished the competition with an overall score of 48.7. Overnight leader, Burnett, had one unlucky rail down, dropping her behind Davidson to a score of 49.6.
The two Pan Am Games teammates congratulated each other heartily at the round’s end.
“I’d never want anything bad happen to anyone else but I am really happy not to be second,” Davidson grinned. “And it’s great to have my friends here next to me,” pointing to Burnett and CCI3* third place finisher, Hawley Bennett-Awad.
KALISPELL, Mont. July 23, 2016 --Hannah Sue Burnett, The Event at Rebecca Farm's overnight leader in the CCI3* division had a run-in with a moose on cross country today while aboard Cooley Dream. Fortunately, although moose are common to this corner of Northwest Montana, Burnett's moose was simply one of the creatively designed jumps crafted by expert jump builder, Bert Wood.
Hannah Sue Burnett, The Plains, Va., came back from her moosecapade to ride Mary Ann Ghadban's Under Suspection to a double clear round into the lead with 45.6 penalties. Bruce "Buck" Davidson on Copper Beach, a 10-year-old Irish Sport Horse owned by Carl Segal and Sherrie Martin, kept the pressure on with a score of 45.7, placing him just one tenth of a point behind Burnett. In third is Hawley Bennett-Awad on her own Jollybo with a score of 53.9.
KALISPELL, Mont. July 22, 2016—The 2016 Event at Rebecca Farm saw the highest of the international levels competing today in the dressage phase. The CCI3* division was led by an unstoppable Hannah Sue Burnett who ended the day holding both first and second places in a competitive field.

In 2015, we jumped to a new level with an international CCI 3-star division featuring the most challenging cross-country course in the history of The Event at Rebecca Farm. We set a new record with nearly 590 competitors, offering young and developing equestrians the chance to compete on the same stage with Olympic-caliber horses and riders. Equally important, The Event provided a huge boost to the local economy, attracting $4.4 million in economic impact to area restaurants, retailers, and hotels. It was a banner year, due in large part to the incredible equestrian and local communities that supported The Event at Rebecca Farm. Those who sponsor and volunteer are the heartbeat of this event – they are the ones that make it possible to continue building something great. In 2016, we hope to see many new faces and old friends taking part in The Event at Rebecca Farm.
