Road To The Olympics: Reed Kessler, Part 2

I definitely felt that I had something to prove at the first two observation events during the Kentucky Spring Horse Show.

My performance at the selection trials in March was unbelievable, but I have to keep showing that it wasn’t just a lucky week, that I have the ability to perform that way all the time. I have to keep impressing the selectors.

Otto Is Fit And Ready For The Selection Trials

Otto and I have been working hard to prepare ourselves for our journey to the Olympics. Well, first we have to set our sights on the USEF Olympic dressage trials in Gladstone, N.J., and THEN we can focus on the Olympics.
