An Early Morning On The Last Day

What's it like on the Sunday morning of the Rolex Kentucky CCI****? It's a start-in-the-dark kind of day!

Leah Lang-Gluscic and AP Prime had a great trip around the Kentucky Horse Park to complete their first four-star cross-country with no jumping penalities and just 14.8 time penalties to move up to 30th place going into the show jumping.

Here's Leah on Sunday morning:

And here are a few photos of Leah and AP Prime from cross-country day!

Tryon: Triumph Of American Design

Dear Rita,

I was both excited and intrigued to see the CDI*** at Tryon, N.C., appear on the FEI calendar this spring. Our country needs more international venues, and North Carolina lies conspicuously in the middle of our bi-annual migration between Florida and New Jersey.

How To Make A Grand Prix Horse

Meet him at late 3 or early 4 years old. He’s keen-eyed and clever-looking, and he walks, trots and canters under saddle. He goes when you drive and whoas when you gather and mostly steers. He stands on the crossties and gets on the trailer and stands at the mounting block. He’s balanced and shiny and remarkably organized, with nice conformation and clean legs. You love him immediately, which is good, because two weeks later he’ll have kicked the stall and sliced his leg open, and grown an inch behind, and lost the capacity to turn right. Love him anyway.

It’s not. It’s exactly what happened at Antebellum Farm in Lexington, Ky., during four-star eventer Halpin’s two-day clinic on April 16-17. (You can see my stories about the clinic for the Chronicle here.)
