Cody Rego who we have covered extensively during the WEF Series in Florida is continuing his fine performances with consistent success in USA Equestrian competitions - on this occasion at the 2021 Tryon Spring Series 1 & Series 2 held at the Tryon International Equestrian Center, North Carolina – home of the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games.
In Series 1, Rego, and his mount Asgard, finished 6th in the Platinum Performance/USEF Talent Search and 7th in the WIHS Equitation Hunter Phase. Rego went on to secure an extremely commendable 2nd in the ASPCA Maclay 3’6” thus securing a spot in the Maclay Regional/Finals to be held later this year.
In Series 2, this time riding, Achtung Baby, Rego finished 1st in the Low Junior Jumper 1.20m class, 2nd place in the Low Junior Jumper 1.20m, 5th in the Platinum Performance/USF Talent Search, and an impressive 2nd in the WIHS Equitation Jumper Phase.
Riding Achtung Baby in Low Junior Jumpers 1.20m division (sponsored by St. Luke’s Hospital) this dynamic duo was rightly declared Champion of the division with two 1st placings and one 2nd placing.
It was just over 6 months ago that, 15-year-old Rego was given an “opportunity of a lifetime” when he was invited to become a working student at the North Run. Based out of Vermont and Florida, North Run is owned and managed by well-known equestrians Missy Clark and her husband John Breenan.
During the upcoming summer months, Rego will continue to compete under the North Run banner. Future Competitions will include prestigious events including Tryon, Upperville, Lake Placid, Great Lakes, and the Hampton Classic.
