Groom Spotlight: Stacey Driscoll Runs A Tight Ship For Eventer Ryan Wood

It takes a special talent to juggle the sheer number of horses that eventer Ryan Wood brings to a competition, but his groom Stacey Driscoll is up for the challenge.

Wood often rides 10 horses at one-day events, so organization and efficiency is key.

“She showed up as a quiet, young, shy girl about four years ago, and she’s really developed into an amazing asset to our operation,” said Wood. “She is the head groom and runs the show.

Behind The Stall Door With: Loughan Glen

It would be easy to walk by the quiet bay facing the back of his stall and not think twice.

But the moment he walks out of the stall and perks up his ears, you’ll be taken aback.

Montgomery’s four-star partner and partner for the U.S. eventing team at the Rio Olympic Games, Loughan Glen has the “look of eagles,” with a bright, unusually amber-colored eye and a classic build—the perfect modern event horse.
