Lynn and Donner finished in second place at the inaugural Land Rover Great Meadow International CIC3*. The pair scored a 42.8 in dressage to sit in fourth, jumped double clear show jumping to move into third and added only 7.6 time on cross-country (due to the wet weather) to finish the weekend in second place.

From the USEA press release:
Lynn Symansky and the Donner Syndicate LLC's Donner, a 12-year-old Thoroughbred gelding moved up into red ribbon position. Lynn agreed with Jennie’s assessment of the course: “I expected the course to ride well, and I trust Mike’s courses,” said Lynn. “I thought it was a great run for Donner. The footing was fantastic and he felt great.”
“It was his first outing since Rolex, and it was a little bit of a tough lead up as last week I hurt my back and I actually was unable to ride and really prepare for this week how I would usually work him. I was just planning to try to get through Dressage, but my back was cooperating so I took it day-by-day and he stepped up the plate. I couldn’t be happier with him - he felt fantastic.”
