Ohlala Draws Oohs And Aahs In Alltech National Speed Class

Lexington, Ky.—Nov. 2

It’s good to know that occasionally grand prix riders miss too!

The crowd gasped a couple of times as Lauren Hough blazed around the $50,000 Chartis International Speed class. Once when she and Ohlala left out a stride to an oxer and flew through the air effortlessly, and another time when she flat-out galloped to a vertical and missed.

“I had a really big chocolate chip there!” Hough said, laughing at herself. “But she was amazing and cleared it; I don’t know how she did it. It wasn’t one of my smoothest rounds, but it all worked out.”

San Morino's Win That Almost Wasn't At Alltech National Horse Show

Lexington, Ky.—Nov. 2

Ever have that dream that you’re late for a big, important class? You’re due to show in a class that would clinch you a championship at a major indoor show, but your clothes are back at the hotel and your horse isn’t braided?

Lisa Williams lived out that scenario this morning. Thankfully, with the assistance of many helping hands, she made it to the ring with San Morino on time to win the amateur-owner hunter, 36 and over, stake class and claim the division championship.

Chris Payne Upped His Game At The Alltech National Horse Show

Lexington, Ky.—Nov. 1.

Chris Payne left the Alltech National Horse Show with a pair of tricolors. They might have been the red, yellow and white of reserve championships rather than the blue, red and yellow of champions, but he didn’t mind one bit.

“This show is iconic. It’s the horse show, in my mind as a hunter rider, and the true pinnacle of the year. When you have a horse that has the talent and quality to compete at the National Horse Show and be in the ribbons, it’s the kind of thing that drives you the whole year long,” Payne said.

Casallo Has Breakfast Of Champions At Alltech National Horse Show

Lexington, Ky.—Oct. 31.

They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and Casallo proved that adage in spades at the Alltech National Horse Show.

In the early morning hours before a show, while most hunters are working on their flatwork or longeing, Casallo is having his breakfast. In the ring. On top of the jumps.

Milliren Wows Them At The ASPCA Maclay Final

Lexington, Ky., Nov. 6

Sarah Milliren knew she had to lay it on the line in the last testing round of the ASPCA Maclay Final.

She’d been on top of the stand-by since the start of the class and was called back in first for the flat phase. But in the flat phase, Michael Hughes had edged in front of her. So, in Round 2, Milliren rode a bold round on Terrapin Station and impressed the judges. Hughes was tentative and conservative in Round 2, and he dropped out of the lead.
