Just in Time for Rolex, Madison Park Gets a New Rider

The rider’s name is … Kitty Cat?

A wave of hushed shock rippled through the Ocala eventing community yesterday when ride times were posted for the Florida Horse Park Dressage, Jumper & 3-Phase Show, to be held at the Florida Horse Park this weekend. Several Rolex-bound pairs will be using the schooling show as a dry run of FEI 4* Test B, which they’ll be performing in Kentucky next week. All the names in the division were familiar — with one notable exception.

No “Kitty Cat Carter” appears to be registered with the USEA, suggesting that perhaps he/she is a foreign rider.

At the time of posting, no mention of the rider change had been made on the Carters’ website, Facebook page or Twitter account, although they did recently re-tweet a quote from Grumpy Cat — could there be a connection?

Keep it locked on Eventing Nation for further developments. Best of luck to Parker and Kitty Cat!
