Catching Up With Colleen Rutledge: Shiraz Is Back In A Big Way

Colleen Rutledge made headlines last year when she finished the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials CCI**** (England) with Shiraz, making them one of few pairs to have completed five of the six major four-stars in the world without a cross-country jumping penalty (the only one she hasn’t competed in is the Adelaide CCI**** in Australia).

Rutledge, 37, Frederick, Md., spent the summer and fall working on “Luke’s” dressage, the phase he notoriously dislikes, and earning good results with her homebred Covert Rights, or “C.R.”, at the three-star level.

R-Star Retires From Eventing Due To Heart Condition

Kristi Nunnink announced today, April 18, that she's retiring four-star mare R-Star from eventing because of issues with the horse's heart. The mare was entered to compete in the Rolex Kentucky CCI**** next week. 

“We noticed it [at Rolex last year] in the holding box afterwards when she first came off the course,” Nunnink explained. “She would throw some irregular heartbeats. We took her to U.C. Davis [Calif.] and did a lot of research. She basically only threw them when she was in light work, and when she galloped, her heart would beat really well.”

Get To Know U.S. Eventing’s Show Jumping Coach Silvio Mazzoni

It takes a lot to understand the mechanics of getting an event horse to show jump clear on the third day, especially at the upper levels. How do you take a fit, but possibly tired horse, who just galloped several miles across country over nearly 30 obstacles at 550 meters per minute and make him be careful and tidy the next day?

With the extremely competitive modern sport, there’s been a need for a show jumping specialist coach for the Land Rover U.S. Eventing team who could travel to competitions and help riders, as well as work with them individually during training sessions.

As Natasha Nagawiecki prepared to lead Reali Equine LLC’s Reflection into the ring in the Shapley’s Groom’s Class during Week 8 of the FTI Consulting Winter Equestrian Festival (Fla.), she noticed a small black spot on the white mare’s leg where she’d gotten a smudge of hoof polish as she walked.

Will Coleman was competing the 11-year-old Anglo-European gelding in the advanced, test A, division when they fell at fence 17AB, the Bridlewood Wine and Intersource Cheese complex of a table and a skinny wedge.
