Rolex Kentucky CCI4* Recap

The Fernhill Classic Syndicate's Fernhill Classic
It's so great to be back at the top level of eventing. Woodstock Eventing has an amazing team of people working for us, as well as supporting, owning, and sponsoring us. Thank you to my amazing owners and friends who were able to come to Rolex, and to those who were cheering from afar.

It was a rainy weekend at the Kentucky Horse Park, but all three horses put in amazing efforts in their 4* debuts. I'm thrilled with The Fernhill Classic Syndicate's Fernhill Classic and Heather and Bob Sinclair's McLovin for completing their first 4*. Unfortunately, I had a fall from Steve and Karri Guy's Frankie early in the cross-country after a big jump into the water unseated me. Frankie still lined up for the next jump, but his jockey took a swim! Both of us are just fine and will be back better and wiser on our next start.

In the Dubarry of Ireland Nations Team Challenge at Rolex, I had the privilege of being teamed up with James Alliston, Panda Christie, and Rolex winner Michael Jung. Team Australia, Germany, and Great Britain placed 3rd in the Nations Team Challenge with a cumulative score of 298.5.

This coming weekend, Woodstock Eventing will travel to Cockeysville, Maryland to compete in the MCTA Horse Trials.

Thank you again to my incredible owners, sponsors, and supporters for your support of Woodstock Eventing!
