It’s time for another edition of Who Jumped It Best? This time we’re headed to wine country for the Split Rock Jumping Tour’s Sonoma International CSI2*.
There was plenty to do around Olaf Peterson Jr.’s course for the $35,000 FEI 1.45m Welcome class, including this middle oxer in a triple combination which dashed jump off dreams for more than a few competitors.
Now you get to be the judge. Put on your George Morris hat and decide which horse and rider you think present the best overall picture. Vote in the poll at the bottom of the post. Go jumping.

Shelby Allen grew up riding thanks to a mother who shares her love for horses. Hilltoppers Pony Club got her hooked on the thrill of going cross county, and she hasn’t looked back since. After a two-year stint living in Middleburg, Va. and working for the USEA, Shelby joined the Eventing Nation team in 2017. She now lives in Georgia with her trio of fantastic guys: Justin (the horse), Franklin (the dog), Kody (the understanding boyfriend).
