Blogger Leah Lang-Gluscic



So the week that everyone was leaving for Burghley, I was feeling pretty sorry for myself. I was going through the motions on my farm, but not enjoying it. 

As an incredibly competitive person, not even getting to show up and give it a go was just the worst.

Well poop…

Those words pretty much sum up my personal competition ambitions at the moment. One moment, I had a fabulously fit horse coming back from a great first run at the Rolex Kentucky CCI****, and the next, not so much. 

I’ve been out of touch for a while, so I will start back at the beginning.

Following Philippa Humphreys’ death, I didn’t know what to say. Everyone on Facebook had these beautiful tributes and thoughtful perspectives about the implications of this horrible tragedy on our sport, and I had nothing. 


Blogger Leah Lang-Gluscic wrapped up her first completion of the Rolex Kentucky CCI**** in 33rd place on her off-the-track Thoroughbred AP Prime after a show jumping round with one rail and 11 time faults. 

Her thoughts on the weekend? She knows what homework she has to do and she can't wait to get back to the Kentucky Horse Park next April!

What's it like on the Sunday morning of the Rolex Kentucky CCI****? It's a start-in-the-dark kind of day!

Leah Lang-Gluscic and AP Prime had a great trip around the Kentucky Horse Park to complete their first four-star cross-country with no jumping penalities and just 14.8 time penalties to move up to 30th place going into the show jumping.

Here's Leah on Sunday morning:

And here are a few photos of Leah and AP Prime from cross-country day!

Dressage = done, so Leah Lang-Gluscic and AP Prime are looking forward to the fun part of the Rolex Kentucky CCI****. Here's what Leah had to say about their dressage day, which saw them end up in 61st in the standings after a score of 62.1...

Leah Lang-Gluscic and AP Prime have a 9:58 a.m. ride time on Friday, April 28, so Leah spent quite a bit of time at the Rolex Kentucky CCI**** today walking the cross-country course!

Did you miss Leah and AP's first set of blogs, about their journey to an arrival at the Rolex Kentucky event? See AP turned out, spiffed up for the jog, and more.




The Carolina International: Massive Ian Stark cross country course, 4:41 pm ride time, and carnage all day long. 

That daunting combination had me wondering all day that Saturday, “Why in the world do I want to do this?”
