Cross country day was fantastic! The weather was great, the footing was perfect and the riding was stellar. Very few falls and no horse injuries that I am aware of. What a great day!
On to xc tomorrow!
I’m in a minivan full of friends and we’re heading to the Rolex Kentucky Three Day Event in beautiful Lexington, KY. Despite the fact that it will actually be warmer this weekend in the Land Of No Spring – Iowa, our dear home – than in Kentucky, it doesn’t even tweak the party because the galloping and jumping horses and equestrian super heroes are cranking it up in Lexington this weekend. Yessir.
The dressage phase started today and, thanks to Jon Chester loaning me his wonderful Mifi and Jay the OTR driver, I watched every ride while blazing east toward KHP. Tomorrow is another day of dressage and you can watch while you are supposed to be working on Friday, by clicking here.
The Rolex leader board is here and all I can say is Go Becky Holder, midwestern girl, foxhunter goddess and all around good person. Get ’em, girl. Go OTTBs. They’re everywhere this year. I guess the short format didn’t phase them.
Finally, I stumbled across this blog this week and I bet every eventer rocking the four star this weekend subscribes to most of the 6 truths. The blog is a bit harsh at times, but then, we all need an intellectual half halt now and then.

Tune in tomorrow when I’ll share some insights about our day watching world class eventing dressage, shopping at one of the biggest tack markets in the world and going to “Thoroughbreds for All” where Phillip Dutton and Chris McCarron will be speaking. Seriously, yo. 😉
