Creedance Scores Big With Farrington At The Longines Masters Of Los Angeles

Long Beach, Calif.—Sept. 30 

Kent Farrington left the Rolex Central Park Horse Show disappointed. He and Creedance missed out on a big win when that horse pulled a rail in the jump-off of the $216,000 Rolex U.S. Open Grand Prix.

Nestor Nielsen Van Hoff Makes A Long Awaited Olympic Debut

Nestor Nielsen van Hoff may have been the happiest show jumper on the showgrounds on the opening day of show jumping the Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games.
