Life Goes On While I Ride In Circles

Well, healing is continuing as well as it possibly could! I got to ride Walkabout in the training sessions on my second day because Mark was quite happy with how Ping was going.

Back In The Saddle Again

Well since my last blog I feel like life has been a little bit of a whirlwind. If you’re just catching up, I broke my collarbone schooling a young horse on March 1. As you can see in the picture, I busted it up pretty good.

A Wrench In The Works

In my last blog I spoke out about the selection process, which is a pretty sticky thing to get involved with. However, I am very confident in our Active Riders Committee. I think our country will end up with a good coach regardless of the upset of the process.

Riders Deserve A Say In Their Next Eventing Coach

I am often hesitant to take a stand and put my opinion out there when controversial subjects arise, but over the past few days I have had time to sit and really think about the fact that Bobby Costello and Phillip Dutton did not get named to the short list for our future Chef and Technical Advisor.

Training Sessions And Training Events

The season is cranking up, and we are well under way here at Red Oak down south. We started off the year with the lower level horses running at Sporting Days.

Back And Forth To Aiken

Greetings to everyone from lovely Aiken, S.C., where it is not as cold as I feared it was going to be.  

I’ve had quite a trip—from Wellington to Ocala to pick up horses for my friend, then to Aiken where I got in at 3 a.m, and then back to Pennsylvania the next morning to pick up six more horses. I got to Aiken yesterday late afternoon!

After three days on the road I am feeling a bit rough and a big thanks to all my friends who were on the phone with me the whole time keeping me awake.

A Great Safe Start To 2011

Well it seems like just yesterday that I was writing the closing of the season blog here on the Chronicle.

Time sure flies by, and I really have had plenty of reasons I should have been writing in the off-season. I would love to announce that Nina Gardner now officially owns Indie!

The USEA Convention was amazing and a wonderful time as well as very interesting, and I was thrilled with Cambalda (Ping) being named Horse of the Year and Indie being training level Horse of the Year.

Cooper Was With Me At Galway

Well, as I sit here on Hawley Bennett’s couch, a lot is rolling on through my mind about how the last few days have gone at the Galway Downs CCI*** in Temecula, Calif.

Great Start To Galway

Today was quite the day at Galway Downs with dressage and show jumping in full swing. I started off my day by hacking Ping out and watching Livingston show jump with his new rider doing her first preliminary. I would be pretty pumped if I was her!

After my warm-up hack I jumped on the Ian Stark course walk, which was wonderful and very informative. He also gave me some new insight to some of the cross-country efforts and how to ride them.
