But after I showed Chill R Z at the Alltech National Horse Show [(Ky.) in November], I really shut him down and gave him two weeks where he just turned out in the paddock.

After the Olympic selection trials in March, SRF Dragonfly didn’t show much before the $200,000 Budweiser American Invitational (Fla.) on April 5.  But then a big thunderstorm hit right before we were supposed to jump, so I scratched from the class.
