A Very Good Weekend At Jersey Fresh

It was quite the weekend at the 2010 Jersey Fresh spring three-day for me as well as everyone at True Prospect Farm. I have to say it was one of my best goes at that event. I am so incredibly thrilled with Cambalda and also for everyone in our barn. In addition to winning the CCI**, “Ping” won best conditioned, and his owner, Nina Gardner, took home the owner’s award.

A New Owner For Ping

Getting ready for Jersey Fresh has been keeping everyone at the farm quite busy. We were all really excited about how well Rolex went for everyone at True Prospect Farm. Though I am sad that we didn’t make the trek to England, I was really happy to see Woodburn do so well at Kentucky. It was also awesome to see The Foreman back in action and showing his stuff on the big stage.

These Boots Are Made For Riding

Well as Rolex heats up and gets cranking I'm excited to say that I've got a new sponsor in the mix.

Ronald Zabala-Goetschel and Wise Equestrian have signed me on as one of their sponsored riders, and they are going to be supplying me with these amazingly beautiful boots that are made in Argentina. Not only did I get to help design my own pair, but a small part of the profits of every pair I designed that sells will go to helping me in my eventing career. Needless to say, I am really excited about that!

Volcano Interrupts Travel To Badminton

Well the past two weeks have been quite busy, as things usually are at True Prospect Farm. Since getting back from Aiken, we've traveled to Plantation Field and Fair Hill.
I had four horses running at Plantation Field and had the pleasure of riding Jan Bynny's horse, Walstraed, in the preliminary. I was quite excited to have the oppurtunity to ride this talented grey Dutch horse and was really happy with the outcome of the weekend. Unfortunately Jan has to sell Walstraed as she isn't quite working in full force yet.

Headed Home After A Busy Time In Aiken

Can you believe another Aiken has come and gone? We are already back up North getting ready to tackle some big spring three-days. I am certainly happy to be back home and am looking forward to the upcoming months here at True Prospect Farm.

First off, The Fork was a great event this weekend, and we were blessed to have some amazing weather to work with for once. Cambalda ran his first intermediate back and was amazing.

A Good Outing At Southern Pines II

Well this weekend was a good one for me at the Southern Pines Horse Trials II as well as for our whole True Prospect Farm crew. The weather was great as well as the competition. It was a good weekend for the sport too, as there were few falls, and everyone came out of the weekend looking good.

Busy Times In Aiken

I’ve been swamped the past couple weeks here in Aiken, and I am excited to say that things have been going quite well.

On a not too positive note, I am really worried about Jan Byyny, and I know that she is one tough, brave person who will get better. It still is such a reality check though that our sport can be so taxing at times. Jan and Rebecca Howard are two great riders, and I have always looked up to Jan so much. She has been there for me and is always willing to give advice and have my back, so I cannot wait to see her out doing what she does best soon.

A Busy Weekend At Paradise

As the eventing season continues on, we’ve had a really busy week at Phillip’s place. Between training sessions and events mid week and on the weekend, things are well under way and going quite well for us.

I just got through the Paradise Horse Trials this weekend, and with four to ride it was an exciting, busy and rewarding weekend for me. I was thrilled with the three horses that moved up at this event. They had quite a test on the cross-country day.

A Snowstorm In Aiken

So the past week or so I have been slammed busy, but I am excited that all the horses are going really well.

Sporting Days was last weekend, and I had three horses competing there. I was quite sick over the event, so I really appreciated the great help that I had there including Kelley Merrett and Jean Marie who gave me a hand at the event.

Show Season In Aiken Is Under Way

The eventing season is under way, and this week was a busy but good one! With Phillip and Emma still away in Wellington, Fla., for all the team training going on down there, things were cracking up in Aiken at Red Oak.

We got the first cross-country school out of the way at Full Gallop Farm. The young horses I took out were quite good, and the ground was a bit wet with all the rain that we have been getting. I am excited to have some nice young horses down here to ride and compete, and I think that the spring will be a good one.
