Fernhill Fugitive Runs Away With Red Hills CIC*** Win

Tallahassee, Fla.—March 12   

Fernhill Fugitive has always been a solid campaigner for Phillip Dutton, but he may have moved up a few places in his string after his brilliant weekend at Red Hills.

The pair were second to Hannah Sue Burnett and Harbour Pilot after dressage, but show jumped clear this morning over Fuzzy Mayo’s track, then proceeded to put in the fastest cross-country time over Mike Etherington-Smith’s new CIC*** track to seal the win.

Burnett and Harbour Pilot Are Back In Business At Red Hills

Tallahassee, Fla.—March 11  

It’s been more than a year since Hannah Sue Burnett and Harbour Pilot cantered down the center line together, but they came out with a bang at the Red Hills International Horse Trials, scoring a 40.4 to lead the CIC***.

Phillip Dutton and four-star veteran Fernhill Fugitive are second with a 42.4, while Jennie Brannigan and Catalina, who held the lead for much of the afternoon, are third on 44.4.

Four years ago Katherine Coleman packed up her bags and her one horse and left New Orleans for England as a young rider with just a single one-star under her belt a few years before.

Now, she’s back in the United States with six horses, quite a bit of three-star mileage, a thriving supplement business in England and a firm focus on her first Rolex Kentucky CCI****.

Roffman And Meredith Are Engaged And Expecting

Grand Prix dressage rider Caroline Roffman took a quick weekend vacation to Beaver Creek, Colo., with her boyfriend, show jumper Ben Meredith, and got quite the surprise when he proposed on Feb. 20.

“We took a sleigh ride up this mountain, and there was a restaurant on top of the mountain. It was really pretty,” she said.

The couple, who met through mutual friends two and a half years ago when they were dating other people, have been together for about a year and half.

Amateurs Like Us: Orthopedist Christine Ekstrand Balances Seven Children, A Career And CDIs

When she arrived at the L.A. Winter Dressage CDI-W, amateur rider Christine Ekstrand immediately began talking herself out of the classes she’d entered with Concetta.

It had been nearly two years since the pair last showed consistently, and it was Ekstrand’s first CDI. With the thought of multiple judges, more experienced horses and riders, and the pomp and circumstance of a CDI on her mind, Ekstrand nearly walked into the show office to scratch.

Dauntless Courage Carries His Heart And Soul Over Every Fence

If you’d asked Chelsea Kolman five years ago where she expected to be with Dauntless Courage, she would have probably guessed puttering around at a local schooling show. 

As a barely saddle-broke 18-hand 3-year-old PMU horse who’d failed police training school because he was afraid of his own shadow, “Dante” didn’t exactly scream “sport horse” potential.

But somewhere along the way, Kolman earned the gelding’s trust, and he started living up to his name.

In The Ring Or On The Catwalk, Ellesse Tzinberg Is A Role Model For Filipino Riders

Scanning down the list of entries for the CDI***** at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival last weekend, one name caught my eye. Ellesse Tzinberg, riding for the Philippines, was competing the oldest horse in the Grand Prix and Grand Prix Special—Pavarotti, who’s 19.

It’s not often you see a rider from the small island nation of the Philippines competing at the highest levels of the sport, and I’m always impressed seeing older horses doing well, so I tracked down Tzinberg and found out she’s had quite a journey to get to the top level of the sport.
