Delux Z wins CCI 3* and IDHSNA Award at Rebecca Farm   Jul 29, 2015

On a gorgeous day in Big Sky country, Kurt Martin and Delux Z won the $1,200 IDHSNA award for highest placed Irish Draught Sport Horse at The Event at Rebecca Farm (Kalispell, Montana) by winning the CCI3* itself. Delux Z (by Lux Z and out of a Master Imp/Clover Hill mare) went into the stadium round in 2nd place after a clear round and no time faults on Olympian Ian Starks’s bold International-level CCI 3* cross country course. His second clear round put the pressure on first placed horse, The Apprentice ridden by Buck Davidson, but his double clear won the day, and he finished on his dressage score of 47.0
