Keep An Eye Out For Daniel Clasing On Rolex Cross-Country Day

Looking for an inspirational pair to cheer for on Saturday’s cross-country at the Rolex Kentucky CCI****? Take a good look at Daniel Clasing and Houston.

Clasing has shaped Houston’s career since the chestnut gelding stood on stilt-like foal legs, having bought him as a foal and trained him from initial breaking to the advanced level 12 years later.
