Holly Davis, of Fox News DC, headed out to The Plains, Va., to meet the eventers on the USA’s WEG squad yesterday morning, providing two great video clips featuring WEG members Phillip Dutton, Boyd Martin, Sinead Halpin, Kim Severson and Lynn Symansky. This weekend at Great Meadow is a wonderful opportunity for both eventing fans and non-horse people alike to get up close and personal with some of the superstars of the sport. Fox did a wonderful job of making the segments entertaining — and Holly even got to take a ride on Karen O’Connor’s former mount, Mandiba.
I have to give shoutouts to Sinead Halpin for being a pro leadliner and Lynn Symansky for demonstrating that even flying deer can dance (as if we didn’t already know this). Don’t forget, Great Meadows kicks off today, so if you’re in the area, be sure to head out and check out the WEG team in action.
Jenni will be on site this weekend to bring us the inside scoop (Jenni, I’ll put in a good word for you to get a leadline round on Mandiba too!), so stay tuned for much more from Virginia.
