    Default Farrington Wins the Gold Cup at Hickstead!

    Major win for Kent Farrington and Uceko yesterday at Hickstead, GBR. In its 100 year history, only six Americans have won the Longines King George V Gold Cup. What an AMAZING year he's having!

    I was going to post this, right after the class! But I didn't want to spoiler it for anyone waiting to watch online

    The course was a tough one this year and caused loads of problems, very few clear rounds.

    Kent and UCEKO were brilliant, and that horse is gorgeous!

    but how do you pronounce the name?!

    I think Kent is a wonderful, soft rider and his horses seem so well schooled-like eq horses! Congrats to him!!!!

    I haven't been able to locate video of the Gold Cup yet, but I did request it. (Fingers crossed.)

    I did find some old footage and a great story Practical Horseman did on his early career. You can find all of that here, along with a bit Michael Whitaker gossip :

    keep checking You Tube, there are a couple of people on there who regularly put up showjumping videos of major classes
