Rolex: It’s More Than Just A Watch

I haven’t had a lot of time to ride this year. Between work, Snowmaggedon, Snowpocolypse, the rain, the cold, the absence of sunlight, my new coaching gig, and did I mention snow? I’ve been scrambling for more than five hours of sleep at night, let alone going riding.

My Horseshoe Must Be Working

I’ve had a pretty awesome streak of good news, lately. I found out I’m going to Europe in December, I got a job coaching soccer (my other great passion), my best friend just had a beautiful baby boy, the numbers in my bank account multiplied thanks to my income tax return, and I managed to win $200 on the slot machines at Charles Town Races and Slots (W.V.)!

You might be wondering how on Earth this relates to horses and history, but just wait. I do have a point!

Since the school began offering riding classes in the 1930s, Centenary has paved the way for equestrian education.

Centenary College’s Intercollegiate Horse Show Association hunt seat team riders had no expectations when they arrived at IHSA Nationals last April. They wanted to be successful, but their goals centered on riding well and having fun.

So it was a sweet surprise when they walked away with the school’s first Collegiate Cup championship
since 1979.
