Paget Fulfills His Promise At Burghley

With one rail down, Jock Paget and Clifton Promise won the Land Rover Burghley CCI**** (England) on Sept. 8. Not since 1989, when Ginny Leng and Master Craftsman triumphed at both Land Rover Burghley and the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials, has a combination claimed both titles in the same calendar year. This extraordinary feat also sets Paget up for a crack at the Rolex Grand Slam if he can win Rolex Kentucky next spring.

Lenamore Retires

Could a horse win the Land Rover Burghley CCI**** (England) at 17? How about compete in the Olympic Games for New Zealand and capture team bronze at 19? The answer is yes, and after a long and storied career, rider Caroline Powell and owner Lexi Jackson have decided to retire event horse Lenamore at the age of 20.

The charismatic 15.3-hand Irish Sport Horse gelding (Sea Crest—Karinella, Valiyar) began eventing in 1999 as a 6-year-old and was produced through the advanced level by owner Jackson, who gave the ride to Powell in 2004.
