Saturday Morning Links from Tipperary

We could use a few April showers

Good Morning Eventing Nation! I hope that you’ve had a great week and that your weekend has gotten off to a grand start. During this time of year when the grass is growing, the trees budding, and the flowers blooming, it’s hard to find anything that’s not to like about this time of year. My only complaint is that we could really use some of those April showers to soften the ground that’s already started to get quite firm. Oh well, I guess we could all do a rain dance but what will be will be.

Anyway onto the news of the morning:

The Florida Horse Trials and 3-Day Event is taking place this weekend, as Visionaire so kindly wrote a recap of yesterday. It’s a busy weekend at the Horse Park with both a CCI* and ** taking place along with an Advanced combined test and host of other recognized horse trial divisions. [Live Scores]

Besides FHP, Full Gallop is running it’s very last Horse Trials of the spring season this weekend. [Ride Times]

Ram Tap Horse Trials [Live Scores]

St. John’s Horse Trials [Live Scores]

    Another example of eventing in the Midwest being completely ignored.  We were facing a weekend of severe weather and torential rain and trying to run cross country schoolings in spite of it.  Maybe a “East coast eventers could you some April Showers.”  Believe me, we’d be happy to send them your way.
