Eventing: Britain's Zara Tindall takes third place at Rolex Kentucky - will Barbury see her & High Kingdom in July?

Zara Tindall - riding High Kingdom - has taken third place in America's prestigious Rolex Kentucky four-star eventing competition.

With penalties of 46.6, the pair were in sixteenth place at the end of the dressage discipline.  But they followed on day two with a clear cross country round inside the time lifting them into third place. On the final day of the competition they kept that place with a clear round in the show jumping.

The Queen's granddaughter finished two penalty points behind French rider Maxime Livio, with the German rider Michael Jung taking his third Kentucky title.  Next week Jung will be defending his Badminton title.

This performance will put Zara Tindall in a good position to be selected for the British team at the European Championships in Poland this August.  And with this sort of form she will be watched closely during the St James's Place Barbury International Horse Trials in July.

New Zealand Olympian Tim Price - who is based at Mildenhall - was in seventeenth position with Ringwood Sky Boy after the dressage.  But the pair had a torrid time in the cross country and that together with eight jumping faults and three time faults in the show jumping, pushed them down to finish at thirty-sixth place of the thirty-nine riders who completed the competition.
