Throwback Thursday: Lindy Patrick Was A Jack Of All Trades

A few of the Land Rover U.S. Eventing Team horses and riders may have had some challenges to face in recent months, but as eventers, they’ve toughed it out and earned their spots on the World Games team, making it one of the strongest ever.

Lynn Symansky’s Donner had a light spring due to a slight filling in his ankle, only to come out in May and have an unusual fall on cross-country, studding Symansky in the process and causing her to miss several weeks of riding due to torn muscles.
