Great Finish at Burghley CCI4*

Donner BurghleyLynn and Donner crossed the pond to compete at the 2017 Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials. The pair competed at the prestigious four-star in 2015 and the venue and course really suited "the Deer". Donner didn't put a hoof wrong all week (minus the first jog!) and ended up in sixth place and the highest-placed U.S. horse. Lynn and her teammate, Gemma Tattersall were also the winners of the Peden Bloodstock International Pairs Challenge

Top-25 finish for Donner at Badminton CCI4*

Bad17brinkman5 6x4w 5486

Lynn and Donner completed their first Badminton Horse Trials in England - finishing in 22nd place. They scored a personal best dressage mark of 47.2 and Lynn and Donner were one of only 32 clear cross-country rounds (out of 81 pairs) on a very tough track. The Deer lost a shoe very early in the course so Lynn had to alter plans a bit and take some long routes adding time to their score.
