Olympic Media Day in NYC

2016-06-27 PressConference

Interview/Q and A with Leah Oliveto of the USEF

Along with David O’Connor, Clark Montgomery, Lauren Kieffer and Phillip Dutton, I traveled to New York City today to talk about the sport of eventing with members of the media in an event organized by the USEF. We had a Q and A, demonstrations from riders at Riverdale Equestrian Center, and did interviews with a variety of news outlets including TIME, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today and NBC.

It was great coming to New York City today and it’s great to see the interest the Olympics have created with the mainstream media. It goes to show how big the Olymics is when everyone, from all walks of life, is interested in eventing. Having the media event here at a public stable is pretty awesome; we’re right across the street from apartment buildings and businesses in the middle of the Bronx, and a lot of the media here in New York City were able to take a cab to join us up here in Riverdale. It’s pretty cool to see sport horses right here in New York City – it’s not what I expected.

I also had fun teaching reporter Sean Gregory a short riding lesson. Enjoy the VIDEO
