We’re thrilled that we’re getting our first peek of the beautiful day of cross country being enjoyed this weekend at the Virginia Horse Trials in Lexington, courtesy of Tayler Stewart and her team.
If you’ve never been to the Virginia Horse Center, this footage will make you appreciate what a singular cross country experience it is, with undulating hills and massive forest lines all throughout the course. Exactly what you’d expect of a sprawling venue nestled in the Allegheny Mountains of Virginia.
Tayler and Ideal Contini went fast and clear in their CIC2* cross country round yesterday to land themselves a spot in the top ten. Tayler and the gray Westphalian gelding have been paired up for the last two seasons with great success, including wins last year at the Ocala Horse Properties Winter II HT and the Maryland HT, both in the Preliminary division. Ideal Contini was previously the ride of Sally Cousins.
Congratulations on a great weekend Tayler, and thanks for sharing your talents with the YouTube universe!
