Five Years In The Making: John McGinty Gains Approval For CDI Amateur Classes

McGinty, a hunter and jumper judge who competes his Dutch Warmblood Playboy at the small tour as well as working full time as a financial advisor, earned a huge victory with the announcement that the Fédération Equestre Internationale approved a new amateur CDI division for 2015.

Connaught Dies At 21

Phillip Dutton’s Rolex Kentucky CCI**** winner Connaught was euthanized today, Sept. 17, due to complications from old age. He was 21.  

Connaught, an Irish Sport Horse (Ballysimon—Broomehill Rogue, Royal Rogue) owned by Bruce Duchossois, started his advanced career with Julie Richards before Dutton took over the ride in 2004.

Dutton had to build one at his True Prospect Farm.
