Where has this year gone? It feels like just yesterday that we were moaning endlessly about the million-and-one event cancellations that effectively precluded any early-season runs, and now we find ourselves smack in the middle of the third four-star of the year, and what we Brits unanimously refer to as ‘Pimms weather.’ If you don’t know what that is — Americans, I’m looking at you — I suggest you find a specialist booze distributor and find out. Your life — and your approach to going eventing — will never be the same.
We’ve got an enormously busy weekend ahead of us here in the UK, with six events taking place around the country — fortunately, if there’s one thing eventers are great at, it’s multitasking, so the Luhmuehlen live stream will be getting a jolly good workout despite some pesky fences getting in the way.

Friday video: Eventers steal the limelight at Bolesworth
Luhmuehlen isn’t the only high-profile competition taking place this weekend — in the (contentious) north of England, the Equerry Bolesworth International Horse Show is in full swing. Known for its top-notch showjumping and dressage, sideline extreme motor sports entertainment, and, um, ‘Club Boles’, the exceptionally cheeky on-site party, it’s one of the UK’s best, and most luxurious, horsey getaways. This year, they’ve invited the eventing fraternity along for the party too, with the Eventers Grand Prix relay challenge. Top eventers paired up with the best in the showjumping business to lay down some lightning fast rounds in and out of the international arena — check out how it played out!
