Germany, Here We Come

Well, it’s the early morning of the big trip to Luhmuhlen... I realize I haven’t checked in in quite awhile, and it’s really shocking how quickly the past few weeks have flown by.

Expect The Unexpected With Horses

The rollercoaster in the life of an event rider is often times an interesting one, and I have to say that the past few weeks of my life have lived up to that ride and then some with Rolex Kentucky and now Jersey Fresh in the rearview mirror.

Rolex was such a big buildup, and I know in the back of my mind I was holding my breath, anticipating the downfall that so often comes when you’re trying to get to a premier event like that.

The Process Is Half The Prize

Rolex, Rolex, Rolex is all that seems to be on everyone’s minds these days, including my own. But while I’m very excited about Kentucky and getting to compete Ping there, I’m also so excited about how well my lower level horses are going and holding my breath that they’ll continue on a good path for the future.

It’s funny when you think about competing—how it’s always the goal to be going at the upper levels and aiming towards big events. But in the end, I enjoy producing the young horses, and I get such a thrill out of their progress.

Checking Off The Boxes, Counting Down The Days

Greetings, everyone, from the passenger’s seat of my truck, which is on the way to yet again another fun-filled weekend of eventing! I hope everyone’s doing well. While we’ve been cracking away at the events down south, I’ve heard that those who are still up north are preparing for the events up there... Which sounds like it means riding in the snow at the moment.

Training Sessions And Tennis Balls

Well, I have to say, things have been pretty busy since the last time I checked in with you all when I first arrived in Aiken. It’s hard to believe that the first month of our stay here has come and gone, and that Rolex is now only eight weeks away... Time does seem to pass by faster and faster.

Sad Goodbyes And Happy Hellos

Well, it’s been a bit since I’ve checked in with everyone, and quite a lot has been changing since my last blog…

An Excellent Reminder Of Why We Do This

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and are prepared for the coming winter months. I’m certainly never ready for the cold.

I’m currently sitting on my good friends Hawley and Gamal Awad’s couch in Temecula, Calif., where I’ve woken up at 3 a.m. due to the time change! I flew home for a week to spend some time with my family and friends and horse shop before things start getting busy back at True Prospect Farm.

Team Rapport And The Best Pep Talk Ever

I've been quite busy this past month, to say the least, and I feel like I’ve been so lucky to have been so!

I guess the appropriate way to start off a blog would be a recap on how the U.S. Nations Cup team at the Boekelo CCI*** fared. Being named to the team along with Phillip Dutton, Jon Holling and Clark Montgomery was quite an honor and, needless to say, an eye-opening experience.

Welcome To Boekelo!

Well, I’m sitting here in our tack room at Boekelo CCIO in the Netherlands after walking the course with our crew and waiting for Cambalda’s ring familiarization. This morning Phillip and Atlas had a workmanlike test this in the cold weather, and Clark delivered a lovely test on Glen this afternoon, so our team (while I am writing this) is sitting in fifth.

Only In Unionville

Well, it’s been awhile since I checked in, and I know there’s been a lot going on in eventing land with the announcement of the team for London!

I’m so happy that Big Phil and Boyd are on there and really happy for newcomer Will Coleman, as I feel like he’s really earned his spot and has been working so hard to get there. I know everyone has been talking a lot of about that so I’ll move on... I’m sure the Chronicle Forums are buzzing! Ha ha.
