Black’s Ready For Rolex With A Win At The Fork CIC***

Norwood, N.C.—April 10

If you had a big, wide table phobia, today’s CIC*** course at The Fork might have given you some sleepless nights.

But those gigantic galloping tables gave Maya Black and the diminutive Doesn’t Play Fair no trouble at all as they galloped home with the fastest time of the day to take the win over 53 other pairs.

Horses bound for the Rolex Kentucky CCI**** made up much of the division, and each pair had their own plan for the day.

Age Is Just A Number For The Colorful DeCordova

Every now and then, DeCordova will get a little wild when Erin Renfroe leaves the start box at an event, but she just laughs it off.

Because at age 20, the flashy pinto gelding is still gamely tackling intermediate courses with as much gusto as when she first bought him 12 years ago.

“He’s felt better the last two years than he did in his 13 to 17 years,” said Renfroe. “It seems like he’s figured out, and we’ve figured out the right program for him. Every event is just a bonus. He doesn’t owe me anything. Every time we go out I’m just happy to do it.”

One To Watch: Mexico’s Daniela Moguel Is Making Her Dreams Come True

Growing up in Mexico City, eventing wasn’t ever on Daniela Moguel’s radar. A horse-crazy kid, she was a member of her local Pony Club and started her riding career show jumping, until one day she saw a poster that changed her life.

“I went to a show, and outside the bathroom was a picture of a girl, Karen O’Connor, jumping into the water, and as soon as I saw the picture, I said, ‘I want to do that,’” she said.

Phoenix and Pavarotti Are In Tune At The Fork CIC***

Norwood, N.C.—April 8

It almost seemed a foregone conclusion that CIC*** dressage leaders Maya Black and Doesn’t Play Fair would maintain their winning margin at The Fork today, as top horse after top horse came behind them, but failed to best their score of 41.2 from yesterday.

Elinor MacPhail came close and tied Black, then during the final group of riders, Canadian Jessica Phoenix and Pavarotti cantered down centerline and laid down a solid test to take over the lead on 39.2.

Springer and Arthur Stay On Top At Carolina International CIC***

Raeford, N.C.—March 26   

The last time Allison Springer and Arthur galloped around the CIC*** at the Cloud 11-Gavilan North Carolina International, their weekend ended early with Springer sitting on the ground stunned after the notoriously spooky gelding shied at something in the galloping lanes between fences.

But this year they returned, took a hold of the lead and never looked back, taking home the win with a fantastic cross-country ride over Ian Stark’s new track.
