U.S. Doesn't Have The Best Of Mornings In Nations Cup

Lexington, Ky., Oct. 5

U.S. show jumping hopes were dashed somewhat today. At the end of the morning session of the first round of the Nations Cup of the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, the U.S. team hadn’t put a clean round on the board and had dropped from first to fourth. Germany (9.80) has taken over the lead, with Canada (12.93) second and Brazil (13.49) in third. The U.S. team now has 14.69 faults to their name.

It's A Big Payday For Sapphire In Saugerties

Before I left Virginia to travel to Saugerties, N.Y., to cover the Pfizer $1Million Grand Prix, I updated my Facebook status to “I’m off to New York to watch Sapphire win again.” The message was a bit tongue-in-cheek, because obviously anyone can win on any given Sunday, and because it seems a bit ridiculous that Sapphire would win again.

Boyd Martin’s goal isn’t to be selected for the Land Rover U.S. eventing team for the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games. “My goal is to be a contributing member toward a team medal,” Martin said with a quiet, steely resolve to his voice—a distinct deviation from his usual cheery, jokester tone.

Rebecca Broussard Has Changed The Landscape Of Eventing In The United States

In her own quiet way, this determined woman has given to all levels of eventing all over the country.

And then envision someone who has served on several U.S. Eventing Association committees and supported many educational programs.
