Living Legacy

Recently I spent a week in Kalispell, Mont., to attend The Event at Rebecca Farm. I've been there several times in the past as a competitor, and if you have not yet already been, I highly encourage you to do so.

Aside from the absolutely breathtaking scenery and fantastic courses, Rebecca Farm is also one of the most well-run and most fun events you can possibly go to. No matter where you are traveling from, I assure you that it is well worth the trip.

Bringing Up Baby

As young eventers, many of us dream of glamorous horizons. We dream of going to the North American Junior and Young Riders Championships then on to the Rolex Kentucky CCI****, Burghley, the Olympics. We aspire to ride like Fox-Pitt and rack up titles as prolifically as a Davidson.

A Bit Of Introspection On Living The Dream

Now that we have hit the halfway mark of the year, I finally feel like I can take a deep breath.

Though the season is still in full swing, and in particular busy with impending Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games selections, it has still slowed down just enough to give everyone a chance to hit the reset button as we prepare for a summer and fall full of great events.

Three-Day Camaraderie

Last month at the Jersey Fresh International Three-Day Event, I had a fantastic reminder of why I love what I do and why three-day eventing is such a special sport.

No, it's not the fact that I work with some of the world's most talented athletes; although I do. No, it's not the fact that the adrenaline high of a great cross-country ride can last for days; although it does. No, it's that "special bond between horse and rider;" although it does exist.

What sets eventing apart from all other sports, and even most other equestrian disciplines, is the people.

Champions Are Made When No One Is Looking

Practice makes perfect. This is an age-old adage that rings true for any endeavor, from riding horses to building rocket ships. From the time we begin walking we are encouraged by our parents, teachers, coaches, and mentors to try and try again; if you fall, get right back on; and so on and so forth. It doesn't take long until "perseverance and determination" becomes a clich├ęd catch phrase that follows us through life as the key that unlocks the door to success.

The Good Kind of Lucky

Wort and I had the pleasure of attending Red Hills for the first time this past weekend for the CIC***.

Let me start off by saying that the Red Hills International Horse Trials is a phenomenal event. I give a huge round of applause to the organizers, officials and volunteers who make this event what it is.
