Kent Farrington Show Jumping Rider Home Page
The 2016 American Gold Cup concluded after a full week of world-class show jumping competition with the highly anticipated $216,000 Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping New York CSI4*-W. Equestrian fans and spectators gathered at Old Salem Farm and watched as Kent Farrington and Gazelle captured the American Gold Cup.
Nine total riders went clear under the flood lights over the twelve fence track that was set at 1.50m. First to go, Kent Farrington (USA) showed how to do it on the lovely Creedance (Lord Z x Notaris). Seven more riders followed up with clear rounds, and the audience was in for a treat with some of the world’s best ready to race against the clock. As it turned out, it would be all about Farrington.
Just one week after winning Team Silver at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games, Kent Farrington kept his good form by winning the CHF 35,000 Prize Notenstein La Roche Private Bank AG aboard Gazelle and the Longines Grand Prix CSI5* of St. Moritz aboard Creedence.
Kent Farrington and Voyeur led off the U.S. effort with a great round, leaving all the jumps in the cups and picking up only a single time fault as the U.S. Show Jumping team clinched silver at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Kent Farrington, Lucy Davis and McLain Ward will all compete for the United States in Friday's individual clean-slate final.
