  • Mark Todd article in the WEG COTH issue

    Just finished reading this wonderful article by Sara Walker. I am just blown away by how accomplished Toddy is!!!!

    I simply have to find a way to go and watch him ride at WEG now!!!!!!

    The WEG preview issue of COTH is pretty amazing! So glad I get this magazine- after a difficult day at work, it's nice to have something else to focus on!

    I unfortunately haven't seen the article, but he is one of my favorite athletes ever to have graced any equestrian sport. I SO hope he gets one more huge win under his belt before he retires. If he ever does! Even seeing him out of the saddle with his horses is so moving. You can tell that this is what he lives for and was born to do.

      Apparently, from the article- he did retire- to do racehorses- but came out of retirement and returned to riding. Has been at it ever since!

        Yes, I remember reading that RSEventer ! He really had nothing more to win, but continues on, for the pure love of the sport, really.

        Since it is #TBT
        Check out my latest novel, Pride, Prejudice, and Personal Statements!

          He has always been my favorite, He is magic to watch ride. A true horseman.

            I believe George Morris said he was one of the best natural riders out there

              His dressage test at this year's Burghley blew me away.

                Mark Todd is such a class act! My daughter and I were at Rolex a few years back and the entire time I was telling her how much I admired his riding and training, and his performance down there confirmed what a great horseman he was. We were at the warm up ring when they were getting ready for the awards ceremony, and the woman next to me called Mark Todd over for an autograph. My daughter says, "Mom, mom, do you have anything for him to sign?" I did not, so when he was finished signing for the woman, I asked him if I could take his photograph. He says, "Take it with me!" and puts his arm around me as the lady next to me grabs my phone and the rest is history! I was fangirling like crazy for forever; actually, I still am!

                  if you can find it, go back to some of the old videos about him. you can see snippets of him all the way back to 1980 Badminton. the thing you'll notice is that he has always been so smooth. if you can. try to find burghley 1999. he won on diamond hall red, but the real class was word for word, on whom he finished 3rd. outside of bruce davidson riding around rolex in the rain on little tricky in 2000, its one of the best pieces of cross country riding i've seen in the modern era. well...i guess late 90's is no longer the modern era of eventing as courses hadn't started looking like alice in wonderland yet...
