We would like to officially nominate Haley Carspecken for the Working Student of the Year Award. Is snow any excuse for not getting the horses exercised? Not at Mara DePuy’s place! And not when the winter season in Florida is only weeks away. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

Monday News & Notes:

Winner winner chicken dinner! Top year end champions were recognized this weekend at the USEA Annual Meeting and Convention. From top age-divided riders and horses for each level to big grant winners, everyone earns their applause here. The biggest winners were Erin Sylvester and Madeline Backus who took home the big and little Becky Broussard Grants. Can’t wait to see what they can accomplish with those next year.

Ready for your victory gallop in the Rolex Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park? Now’s your chance because the American Eventing Championships are coming to Lexington in 2019! The USEA has also confirmed that once again, a location change will not effect the cost of entries. See you in Kentucky! [Kentucky Horse Park to host 2019 and 2020 AEC]

Michael Jung is known for dabbling in the jumpers, but he’s accomplished his biggest round yet! He finished 11th in the 1.60m Rolex Grand Prix of Geneva in Switzerland. Only one rail down marred his result against some of the best jumpers around. [Photo of the Day…]
