Well it's currently 2:15 in Ohio, and Nate Chambers is driving the rig on our journey to Richland Park. The trip has been uneventful for us, but Boyd Martin and Lillian heard have not had quite the same luck.
I have recovered from my disease and am back in full action at True Prospect Farm! This past week was the North American Junior and Young Rider Championships, and that brings back a lot of good memories and bad as well.
Well this week began with a jump-start because the Phillip Dutton Eventing Academy was on. As soon as I got off my flight from teaching in California, Boyd and I raced back to the barn. I threw some riding clothes on and ventured out to our cross-country field to teach about cross-country position. This all went quite well, and I met my new friend Cherie who is also doing a blog about Big Phil’s camp. http://cheriegetsduttonized.blogspot.com/
I leave from England to come home today, and I have to say that I am a fair bit down and out. Cooper has been so amazing all weekend, and I rode a not very good line on the cross-country, so he had a glance-off at a skinny brush jump. He was really fantastic though, and I am so proud of him.
