Fitch’s Corner Memorial Day Clinic

Once again this year Silva and I headed to Millbrook, NY for the Memorial Day clinic at beautiful Fitch’s Corner. Without a doubt this is one of the favorite clinics of the year, as a lot of our good friends live and train in the Millbrook area and it’s wonderful catching up with all of them. On Saturday I worked on show jumping with the morning groups and went cross country in the afternoon, and on Sunday and Monday we focused on some of the exercises built into the cross country courses Read more...

Shamwari Ready for 2018 Luhmuehlen CCI4*

Next week Shamwari gets on a flight back to his homeland to compete in the Luhmuehlen CCI4*. The last time we went to this 4* in Germany he finished 3rd in the 2014 Nations Cup team event. He’s been training very well this year and by now he’s a very seasoned horse and an Olympic (2012) and World Games (2014) veteran. His three preparation events this spring went fantastic and he also felt really good in a 1.3 meter jumping class last week at the Swan Lake jumper show. Silva’s been helping Read more...

Another Great Night of Arena Eventing

Captain Mark Phillips and Eric Bull did another great job of pulling together the Arena Eventing course in record time at the Devon Horse Show.  The weather held off, and the crowd came out to cheer on a game group of eventing competitors.  Boyd brought Kyra, owned by Chris Turner, and Contestor, owned by Denise Lahey, with hopes to win the big prize money. Riders had to negotiate a course of fixed XC jumps (imported from Fair Hill) and show jumping questions, which challenged rider's adjustability Read more...

Jax and Jouloua at Blue Goose Dressage

My assistant rider Harley showed Joan Fenton White’s gelding Jax W and my mare Joulua W at Blue Goose Dressage over the weekend. Harley is doing a wonderful job while I am pregnant and out of action! She is already looking more and more like a professional rider and I am very proud of how she rides my horses. Joulua W was such a good girl; they finished in second place in a very big, competitive third level class! Joulua is for sale and would be a great horse for a tall rider that wants Read more...

Swan Lake Jumper Show

Featured Video Play IconYesterday I went to the Swan Lake jumper show in Western Pennsylvania with Santos, Eddie, Shamwari and Kyra and competed the horses in the 1.20m and the 1.30m jumpers. Santos - I thought he jumped really well in the 1.20. I made a mistake with my position coming out of the last combination and we had the back rail down because I sat up too early. This phase is Santos weaker phase, and I believe we are making good progress.  I feel like he is getting stronger and more careful; the Bromont Three-Day Read more...
