Brash Is Simply The Best In Geneva

Scott Brash came into the Rolex Top Ten Final as the one to beat, the world No. 1 in the rankings.

And over Dec. 10-14 at the Geneva CHI, Brash showed just why he’s held the No. 1 spot of the world rankings for most of 2014, riding Hello Sanctos not only to the top of the Rolex Top Ten Final—a two-round showdown between the top 10 riders on the FEI World Ranking list—but also to a win in the Rolex Grand Prix, a Grand Slam event.

AD Camille Z Euthanized At Geneva CSI

Athina Onassis de Miranda’s horse, AD Camille Z, has been euthanized following a fall while competing in the Credit Suisse Grand Prix at the Geneva CSIO on Dec. 11.

The 11-year-old gray Zangersheide mare suffered a fracture in the fall over an oxer on course. De Miranda also fell, but was uninjured. Camille was sedated and transported to a veterinary clinic, but veterinarians decided with de Miranda and her husband, Brazilian show jumper Alvaro de Miranda, that euthanization was the only option.

Amateurs Like Us: Lexey Hall Might Need Another GPS

It was a Facebook status update shared and laughed at quite a bit on Dec. 1. Lexey Hall’s tongue-in-cheek declaration of her newly acquired amateur status put a humorous spin on her new U.S. Equestrian Federation designation. She’s no stranger to a Facebook post gone viral—two years ago, a photo of her “equestrian GPS” spread all over the internet.

Throwback Thursday: Anne Huberth Lived The Glory Days

It was a photo that required that I find out the story behind it. A young woman bends at the waist to accept a trophy from an elegant presenter in evening gown and fur coat. And the rider is bareback, on a gleaming gray horse.

Colvin Goes Inside To Win ASPCA Maclay Finals

Lexington, Ky.—Nov. 2  

It was a stride Hunter Holloway will relive in her nightmares for a while. She landed off the next-to-last jump, looked to her left to the ASPCA wall jump and then settled in for a wide turn and seven strides. 

It was a stride too much, and Holloway got Patrick just a little too close to the final jump. Trainer Don Stewart slumped a bit, the crowd sighed, and Holloway shook her head.

Madden Pushes The Limit In The $250,000 CP Grand Prix

Lexington, Ky.—Nov. 1  

They couldn’t be more different. Cortes ‘C’ is a tall, jet-black hunk of a horse, with a big, slow stride and an easy-going manner. His ears are always at attention, his expression calm and composed. Beezie Madden says he’d like to live life as a lap-dog. 

Rothchild is a small, scrappy fighter who looks like he’s spitting nails as he gallops around. He has a rapid stride and a chaotic style as McLain Ward pilots him around. He doesn’t stand still for awards ceremonies.

Two Scholars, A Judge And An Accountant Walk Into A Ring

Lexington, Ky.—Oct. 31  

The title sounds like the lead-in to a joke, but it's what happened over the last few days of the National Horse Show in the amateur-owner hunter divisions. Four champions were crowned—two of them are graduate students, one an insurance agent and judge, and one an accountant.
