Congratulations to Michael and Nathalie Pollard on the birth of their fourth child this morning. Axel Emerson Pollard was born 8lbs, 6oz and 21 inches tall at 8:16am this morning. Congrats to Michael, Nathalie, Axel, and their entire family and eventing program. Getting to know the Pollards has been one of the many wonderful things that has happened in my life as a result of starting Eventing Nation. Michael of course won gold at the Pan Ams as part of the US team and Nathalie has been a mainstay in the eventing community for a long time, only taking brief pauses to pop out kids. Before we know it Nathalie will be back to getting 13’s in the dressage and in a few years young Axel will be carrying on the family eventing tradition. Go Axel.
