Did you miss any of live feeds during Week 3 of the Winter Equestrian Festival and the Adequan Global Dressage Festival on Jan. 27-31? We've compiled a complete collection of the archives of each feed from the week...
Each year, in the first week of February, we publish the American Horses In Sport issue, in which we name Horses and Horsemen Of The Year, publish Between Rounds columns from experts, and collect year-end statistics in the disciplines of show jumpers, show hunters, eventing and dressage.
Technical issues caused problems in the delivery of live feeds during Week 1 of the Winter Equestrian Festival and the Adequan Global Dressage Festival on Jan. 13-17, so we've compiled a complete collection of the archives of each feed. We're working on the glitches and hope to have problem-free feeds available this week!

Look familiar? For the third week in a row, Schuyler Riley was fastest in the jump-off, winning the $127,000 Grand Prix CSI3* in the fourth and final installment of "Saturday Night Lights" show jumping at the Tryon International Equestrian Center. This time, it was aboard Q-7, and she bested second-placed Sharn Wordley and Casper by more than a second.
"Every time I walk a course I think she can do it, and I haven’t had that feeling in a very long time. She’s such a pleasure to ride. She enjoys the sport. She gets it," Schuyler Riley said of the talented young mare Dobra de Porceyo after the pair topped their second six-figure grand prix in a week, the $210,000 Asheville Regional Airport Grand Prix. Read all about it in the Chronicle's coverage of the class, and see just how Riley beat second-placed Kim Prince on RMF Bella Baloubet...
Watching the Rolex Kentucky CCI**** entry list grow every year is an enjoyable spectator sport for sure. And this year's list—which started at a record 88 entries, though we've lost a few since—is especially impressive, with top Europeans like William Fox-Pitt and Michael Jung coming to battle for the top prize. But there are also plenty of U.S. riders who'll make a bid for keeping the Rolex watch in the country this year.
