Meet Toga The Devon Woodchuck

Devon, Pa.—May 28

Some people bring Jack Russells to horse shows, others prefer Corgis. But the Antoniadis family has a different animal in tow at Devon.

Denis Antoniadis and her daughters, pony riders Alliya and Kierstin, saw a small, flat woodchuck in the middle of the road last week while they were at the Saratoga Horse Show (N.Y.) so they pulled over to move him out of the road. But when they got there they saw he hadn’t been hit or paralyzed as they originally feared, he was just extremely dehydrated.

Every since the CHI Al Shaqab began hosting a five-star dressage competition there’s been one thing in common: Patrik Kittel has won. This year he continued his domination, topping both the Grand Prix and Grand Prix freestyle with Deja.

Doha, Qatar—March 5

The recurring joke at the press conference following the €500,000 Doha CSI***** was that this year’s competition had a particularly German bent, as the top three riders all hailed from that country—not to mention course designer Frank Rothenberger.

“We’ve got one open seat—we could put someone there and field your Olympic team,” quipped moderator Steven Wilde.
